0ne of Asia’s most influential agriculture and dairy trade fairs, the International Livestock and Dairy Exposition (ILDEX), is bringing its global expertise to Philippine shores by launching an ILDEX Pavilion at this year’s 16th Agrilink/Foodlink/Aqualink.
“Our ILDEX Pavilion is an interesting concept that we developed especially for the Filipino livestock market. It is a good strategic move for both Agrilink’s organizer, Foundation for Resource Linkage and Development (FRLD), and ILDEX’s coordinator, NEO,” said Mr. Suhbpong Smithtun, NEO’s International Project Manager.
He continued, “FRLD had established itself over the years through strong relationships with the local agri community; while NEO, for lo years now, has had good connection with renowned technology leaders in livestock and event management. This is why the ILDEX Pavilion will be a perfect marketplace for both buyers and sellers in the livestock, dairy, meat-processing, and aquaculture industry. This is perfect timing too, as Filipino producers are in urgent need to improve their productivity and competitiveness to stay ahead of competition, especially after the full implementation of ASEAN Free Trade Agreement (AFTA), which will happen next year.”
