16/12/13: Event: Livestock Myanmar 2014 Expo - Highlighting opportunities for Asia's next rising star

The Livestock Myanmar Expo is the
state's first official feed. livestock & meat industry show.
Myanmar has been described by the International Monetary Fund as “Asia’s next rising star”.

It is strategically located for export markets, straddling the border between South Asia, Southeast Asia and China – 
home to more than 3.6 billion consumers.  

Furthermore, it is endowed with abundant natural resources including ample untapped arable land, oil and gas reserves, water, and corn – the major ingredient for livestock feed. To help all interested stakeholders to better understand the potential opportunities in Myanmar, particularly with the coming ASEAN Economic Community in 2015, Livestock Myanmar 2014 Expo - Myanmar's first official feed, livestock & meat industry show will take place next year. 

What will Livestock Myanmar include? 
The expo is hosted by the Myanmar Livestock Federation and organised by global marketing and communications service UBM. According to Mr. M. Gandhi, managing director, UBM ASEAN Business, "the Expo will address changes and opportunities in the animal protein sectors, major issues and future trends, including regulations, sustainability, health and productivity.

Products, solutions and know-how from leading ASEAN agribusiness companies will be showcased.  We sincerely thank the Myanmar Livestock Federation and Ministry of Agriculture for their support and are confident that the Expo will foster valuable partnerships between Myanmar companies and international enterprises. A comprehensive series of free and informative seminars and conferences, featuring renowned local and international speakers will be a highlight of the show.” 

The expo will also feature the Myanmar Livestock Federation's 14th Annual Meeting. “We are expecting more than 500 members to attend” commented Dr. Mya Han, chairman Myanmar Livestock Federation. “As Myanmar’s peak livestock organisation we have more than 13,000 members representing all states and divisions. The Federation covers the entire livestock industry with stakeholders including farmers, breeders, hatcheries, feed millers, domestic distributors of feed, animal health and feed additives and equipment, and traders involved in the export and import of animals and animal products.  Our 14th Annual Meeting will include presentations from the seven states on the challenges of livestock production in their region.”

Myanmar has a wealth of natural resources that could support products from farm to fork and create business opportunities to share knowledge and technology and create partnerships to fastrack the development of the local feed, livestock and meat industries, and contribute to Myanmar’s economic growth and prosperity.

Livestock Myanmar is being jointly held with FPP-Myanmar - a one-stop event for food from 
farm to fork. The shows will take place under one roof, offering  gateway to the quality, efficiency and sustainability of the food value chain.

Because food production starts on the farm, livestock management is a huge factor in food quality and safety. It is hoped this partnership will add to the practical appeal of both shows.

Dr. Khin Zaw, Livestock Breeding and Veterinary Department deputy general director said the government was pleased to strongly support Livestock Myanmar 2014 Expo and thanked UBM and all participants for contributing to the ongoing development of Myanmar’s livestock and allied industries. “Being a comprehensive and international trade show that covers the entire value chain from farm to fork, it is the ideal platform to stimulate interest in business opportunities and technology transfer in Myanmar.  We encourage cooperation and investment to contribute to accelerating our economic and social development.  Myanmar has the potential to become a regional force in agriculture – the best is yet to come” he said. 

When/where is Livestock Myanmar? 
The joint expo will take place from 23 - 25 January 2014 at the Tatmadaw Exhibition Hall, Yangon, Myanmar.
