Asia House, together with the Danish Agriculture and Food Council and The Danish Trade Council, is pleased to invite you to the business forum “ASEAN’s rapidly growing Food and Agriculture Sector – The Danish Business Case”
Southeast Asia has undergone a dramatic shift in its dietary patterns in recent years. This has extensivelyincreased the demand for the upscaling of production, higher quality and variety of the products the food and agriculture sector produces in the region. This offers vast business opportunities for the Danish food and agriculture sector. The forum will set out to elaborate and discuss these Danish business opportunities.
The participants will be introduced to the food and agriculture sector in the region. The Vietnam, Bangladesh, India and Pakistan country cases will be presented in detail. Furthermore, a discussion will be conducted about the Thai dairy sector, and why the Danish connection from the 60’s hasn’t transformed into Danish business opportunities today.
