With 8669 visitors on the first day VIV Asia, which is held from 11 to 13 March in Bangkok, Thailand, had a successful start.
Half of the visitors originated from Thailand and the other half came from many other countries in Asia and further away.
Our Pig Progress editor Vincent ter Beek noticed an enthusiastic atmosphere. “Many trade deals have been made,” he said.
Dr Orapin Sukpiriyagul was awarded the VIV Asia Pig Personality of the Year. Mrs Sukpiriyagul has for many years been the nutritional backbone of one of Thailand’s leading agribusinesses.
