The year 2017 is designated to mark the occasion upon which Thailand’s agricultural standards will be elevated and remain in continuous sustainable development.” He added that a number of companies were selected to provide showcases of their technology and innovation at VIV Asia with the aim to help Thailand become a hub of animal industry product exportation to the global market.
