During the upcoming edition of HortEx Vietnam 2023, which will be held from 1 – 3 March at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center (SECC) in Ho Chi Minh City, the Netherlands, as a partner country, will showcase an impressive number of 33 Dutch companies. In addition, a collective pavilion made of sustainable materials will be one of the exhibition’s highlights.
“Sustainability and circularity are focus points for the cooperation between the Netherlands and Vietnam. There are many opportunities for Vietnamese and Dutch businesses to cooperate and contribute to the sustainable development of the Vietnamese horticulture and floriculture sector, which will lead to the upgrade of the sector,” stated Ms. Ingrid Korving, the Agricultural Counsellor of the Netherlands Embassy in Vietnam.
Furthermore, the Netherlands embassy will organize a field trip to Dalat prior to the exhibition, a networking reception at the end of the first day of the exhibition, and an extensive contribution to the seminar program, which is being organized during HortEx Vietnam 2023.

The Vietnamese Horticulture sector is growing rapidly, with production systems slowly moving away from traditional open-field production to protected cultivation. Food safety and quality are becoming more and more important due to increasing local consumer demand for safe food and high standards and the increase of exports to various export markets, including the EU.
For 2023 the Vietnamese GDP is expected to grow by about 7%. With these figures, Vietnam is by far the fastest-growing economy in the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) region.
