Agricultural production is a key economic sector in Vietnam. It is contributing to about 18% GDP of the country and 39% of Vietnam’s 100 million inhabitants work in agriculture.

Due to the tropical climate, fertile soils, abundant water supply and rich biodiversity, Vietnamese farmers have increased agricultural production with year-on-year growth rates of over 3.5% over the past two decades. Revenues in agricultural exports has increased over the past two decades from USD 4.2 billion in 2004 to USD 41.3 billion in 2019, making Vietnam the 2nd largest exporter in Southeast Asia. Rice is the most dominant crop and provides livelihoods to two-thirds of the rural labor force.

With over 40 million tons annually, rice production positions Vietnam as the world’s second-largest rice exporter. In order to further increase yields and their exportability and to produce more sustainably, the government is promoting the mechanization of the sector with a development plan. This should continue to drive demand for agricultural equipment and machinery.


Seize the opportunity to offer your products on Vietnam’s market: You can either demonstrate your machines in motion or present your solutions at your information counter.

As exhibitor, you can participate in all seminars and networking sessions. The media entry and comprehensive promotion in our digital communications are included.

>> Full-service information booth (inside tent) – 9m² or 18m²
>> Raw space (inside tent)
>> Raw space (outside) for machinery display
>> Live machinery demonstration in the field

Field Site

All field activities and the exhibition will take place at Cuu Long Delta Rice Research Institute. Ideal because of its proximity to many farmers and decision makers, the site is located in Can Tho Province in the Mekong River Delta.

With 50% of rice production, the Mekong River Delta is considered as the main rice basket of Vietnam. It is about 200km from Ho Chi Minh City. Government representatives, agricultural decision makers as well as approximately 5,000 farmers are located in this area.


The recommend hotel for participants is ‘Mường Thanh Luxury Cần Tho`, where seminars will be held.

There will be a shuttle-bus from the hotel to the field site. The distance from the hotel to the field site is about 30km.

Address: Mường Thanh Luxury Cần Tho, Khu E1, cồn, Ninh Kiều, Cần Thơ 900000, Vietnam

Review 2019 – Myanmar


Product Highlights

“Driven by labor shortage and intensification of rice production the needs to mechanize the rice based cropping systems and to upgrade rice value chains in Myanmar is huge. The AGRITECHNICA ASIA live is going to provide the opportunity for producers, processors, machinery contract service providers and value chain actors to learn about state of the art machinery and postharvest equipment that will make agricultural production more efficient, reduce cost, provide value adding opportunities and lead to a more sustainable production systems while at the same time providing incentives for young people to stay engaged in agriculture as a career choice. I am looking forward to work with our international and national partners to organizing and conducting this exciting event.”

“In recent years Myanmar’s agriculture is growing significantly. Mechanization will play a major role to support this growth and make production sustainable. CLAAS machinery, introduced by our exclusive partner Octagon International Services will contribute to this mechanization and increase productivity of Myanmar’s agriculture. The CLAAS ARION 430 with 115-130 horsepower, as well as the CROPTIGER 40 multi-crop combine harvesters have been introduced to the market since 2015. The proven performance of the CLAAS product range in the Myanmar market demonstrate the capability of modern agricultural machines. CLAAS is proud to contribute to the sustainable development of Myanmar’s agriculture”.
