Sabine Liu, General Manager of UBM Taiwan stated, "According to the UN, farmers have to produce 70% more food by 2050 to feed the global population. To increase food productivity and global competitiveness in the food market, today many governments have implemented facility upgrade subsidies to encourage and optimize food production. A new chapter in the Asia-Pacific agriculture industry has begun."
To take advantage of the global trend, biogas power, intelligent agriculture, and animal medicines and vaccines are being featured in this year's Expo. The biogas facility pavilion is a spotlight of the tradeshow. The establishment of biogas power plants saves husbandry farmers in Taiwan about $7,000 to $20,000 on utility costs each year while receiving feed-in tariffs from the power company. By showcasing the biogas equipment and technology, UBM Taiwan will help to promote investment in biomass and biogas energy beyond the Taiwanese farming community and create wider commercial possibilities and expand the swine business in the Asia-Pacific region. The topical conference "Circular Economy: Biogas Reuse and Production" hosted by Taiwan's leading technology R&D institution, Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) Biogas Power Office, will make its debut at the show.
The 2nd edition of the Expo will double in space and is expected to see 60 percent growth in matchmaking revenue. The Expo is being supported by 25 international associations and 18 professional media bodies, and will be serving the exhibitors and buyers with new market trends and business opportunities. Visitor online registration and buyer accommodation subsidy program are open now.
