New gateway to Southeast Asian market?

Thailand: Agricultural Fair gains more international attention

The Agriculture Fair in Hatyai, a city in Thailand's far south, is in full swing. This 10-day event is being organized for the 25th time and is gaining an increasingly more international attention. From August 11-20, 160 companies are presenting their products and the event welcomes over 100,000 Southeast Asian visitors on a daily basis. According to Richard Bonnet of Dutch exporting company New Fashion Flowers, it is a show with a lot of potential for companies exporting to this region.

New Fashion Flowers is also exhibiting at the show. The Dutch company of New Fashion Flowers exports Dutch flower bulbs to Thailand and the Thai company of New Fashion Flowers grow several plants in their greenhouse in Thailand. "Thai people adore Dutch flower bulbs and the demand for these flowers is rising year after year". Partly of this reason, the organizers of the event (one of the largest agricultural Universities in Southeast Asia) invited New Fashion flowers to exhibit their products at the show. "We have our own air conditioned area where we show some of our products, like tulips, daffodils, hyacinth, hydrangea, amaryllis, but also strawberries, blackberries, raspberries and other kinds of fruit trees, such as apples, pears and cherries. Also these plants are doing well in South Asia."

Another reason, according to Bonnet, why the show is becoming more international is the fact that people in Thailand are becoming more aware of the fact the Dutch agriculture is one of the best in the world.
