There were nearly 300 exhibitors from 29 countries, an increase of about 25 percent from last year, and 10,677 trade participants and conference delegates from 69 countries, a 30 percent increase. These figures confirmed that both trade fairs have underlined their leading roles in both agriculture and horticulture in Southeast Asia. Seven country pavilions along with visitors from 69 countries demonstrated the international scope of the event.
