With Korea opening its borders again, there are new opportunities for the Dutch high-tech agriculture and agricultural machinery.
South Korea is a leading economy in which manufacturing accounts for 90 percent of country’s exports and 30 percent of its GDP. Korea has been investing significantly in research and development, 80% of which is dedicated to manufacturing fields and automation. As less people in Korea go into the agriculture sector, in particular farming, modern faming technologies and equipment not only increase production, compensate the existing labour shortages, but hopefully will attract younger generation farmers with passion for gadgets and easy to operate machineries. As a major global player in the field of agriculture and an important supplier of agricultural machinery and technology, there are market ever growing opportunities for Dutch companies active in high-tech agriculture, innovative solutions, and state of the art equipment in Korea.
From 2 to 5 November, during KIEMSTA, the Agriculture Attaché Network will organize a Netherlands Pavilion, providing a business network platform, and facilitating the Dutch businesses with finding the right partner in Korea. Dutch companies active in the field of high-tech agriculture/machinery are invited to join the Netherlands Pavilion, to showcase their innovative solutions to everyday challenges in this field.
