PRESS RELEASE OF LIVESTOCK MYANMAR 2019

The biggest international exhibition for Agriculture, Livestock and Aqua Fisheries Industry in Myanmar, Agri – Livestock – Aqua Fisheries Myanmar 2019, is set to run from 26th to 28th September 2019, at Rose Garden Hotel, Yangon, Myanmar.

The exhibiton is organized by Minh Vi Exhibition & Advertisement Services Co., Ltd (VEAS), with strong support from related industry associations including Myanmar Livestock Federation, Myanmar Fruit, Flower and Vegetable producer and exporter association, Myanmar Fertilizer, Seed and Pesticide Entrepreneurs’ Association, Myanmar Ornamental Fish Association, Myanmar Fishery Federation, Myanmar Ornamental Fish Association.

Thanks to the favorable condition of a vast land, rich natural resource base and strategic location, Myanmar’s agriculture, livestock and fishery sector has showed its huge potential to both foreign and domestic investments. The agricultural sector accounts for 37.8 percent of the country’s GDP, employs 70 percent of its labour force and generates 25 to 30 percent of total export earnings, according to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization.

Equally important, “Myanmar Agriculture Development Strategy And Investment Plan (2018-19 ~ 2022-23)” of Ministry Of Agriculture, Livestock And Irrigation revealed that livestock and fisheries contribute about 26% of total Myanmar's agricultural GDP. The livestock sector is growing and with rapidly growing income per capita, particularly in urban area, can be expected to increase in importance to meet growing domestic demand. With recent inter-government agreement to export up to 1.0 million cattle per year to China, a considerable impact on meat supply for the Greater Mekong Sub-region (GMS) is expected to see.

Fisheries are already an important export sector since fish is second to rice in its contribution to the Myanmar diet and may be the most important source of protein for the people of Myanmar. Given the country’s long coastline that offers considerable potential, the sector contributes over $300 million per year to Myanmar’s positive foreign trade balance.
