JAAS attended the 19th Jiangsu International Agriexpo (Agriexpo 2017)
The 19th Jiangsu International Agriculture Exposition had its grand opening on September 22, 2017 in Lianyungang, Jiangsu. The Expo was hosted by Jiangsu Provincial Government and undertaken by Jiangsu Agricultural Commission, Department of Commerce, Council for the Promotion of International Trade and Lianyungang Municipal Government. Jiangsu Vice Governor Yang Yue was invited to the opening ceremony. JAAS Vice President Liu Xianjin also attended the expo.
The exhibition theme of JAAS this year was “Increasingly Improved Rice in Jiangsu”. The exhibits not only included Nanjing series (new Japonica rice varieties), Xudao Series and Liandao Series, but also processed rice products, such as colorful rice, rice wine, rice juice. These processed rice products extend the industry chain and increase the added value of rice, which was highly praised by Jiangsu Vice Governor Yang Yue. Over 100 new varieties of sweet potato, leaf-vegetables, fruits, garlics, onions, flowers, and more than 50 processed products of JAAS attracted the interests of visitors and also some enterprises seeking for cooperation.
