Event Overview

With the fastest growing middle class in Southeast Asia, a COVID-resilient GDP growth rate of 2.9%, and 50% of the population relying on agriculture related industries to support their livelihoods, there is significant room for expanding trade outcomes into Vietnam’s agricultural industries.

Vietnam’s agricultural sector faces ongoing pressure from shifting market dynamics and unsustainable production methods which require it to innovate through technology. This is creating considerable demand for AgTech expertise and presents an exciting opportunity for NSW businesses to fill the market gap with their AgTech innovation expertise. There is also opportunity for NSW businesses within the Food and Beverage sector to consider innovating to capitalise on this increasing consumer demand.

This deep sector dive will be complimented with case study examples informing NSW businesses of the AgTech ecosystem and how to enter into this emerging sector from other adjacent sectors. Details of how these companies have entered the Vietnam market, and options for exporting will be explored. NSW Government representatives will be able to emphasis the Government support available and how NSW can help exporters achieve success.

The event will explore the following:

  • Understanding of Vietnam’s Agtech and F&B sectors and emerging opportunities
  • Case studies of NSW success in-market and suggested pathways for NSW exporters
  • How Investment NSW can support and advice potential exporters for success.
  • Expert panellists include:​


  • Kien Van Nguyen, Trade and Investment Director, Ho Chi Minh City – Investment NSW
  • Rob Gordon, CEO of SunRice
  • Will Taing, Founder and Director of Beanstalk
  • Additional speaker to be announced

Registrations are required.
