Why do the farmers’ associations of Moldova disagree with the change in the format of the country’s main agricultural exhibitions?

08/27/2020

Due to the difficult epidemic situation, the exhibitions MOLDAGROTECH and FARMER will be held not in Chisinau, but in an open area near the Institute of Plant Industry in the village of Porumbeni

The administration of the International Exhibition Center Moldexpo announced that the autumn stage of the MOLDAGROTECH and FARMER exhibitions will take place on October 14-17, but due to a difficult epidemic situation, they will not be held in the pavilions of this center in Chisinau, but in an open area near the Institute of Plant Industry in the village of Porumben. The exhibitors will be provided with tents and other demountable structures. Most likely, foreign exhibitors and guests will not participate in the exhibition this year.

Representatives of the National Federation of Farmers of the Republic of Moldova and some other organizations of agricultural producers are negative about the decision to move the location of exhibitions. The bottom line is that the FARMER exhibition-fair was perceived by the bulk of farmers who traditionally participate in this action, first of all, as a platform for a one-time mass sale of seasonal fruits and vegetables, as well as their handicraft products. And the decisive advantage from this point of view was that the Moldexpo center is located in Chisinau and provides a large traffic of visitors. The territory of the Institute of Plant Production in the village of Porumben, although it is located not far from the capital, will certainly not attract a comparable number of visitors.

In addition, for a number of branch (berries, grapes) associations of agricultural producers, exhibitions in the well-equipped center of Moldexpo were important as a platform for negotiations with potential foreign traders. Their absence from exhibitions this year sharply devalues ​​their value.
