With the aim of building an international stage for Shanghai's agriculture industry, the Shanghai Facilities and Agricultural Equipment Association (SFAEA) will bring its members to participate in the 2nd HORTI CHINA held at the Shanghai National Exhibition & Convention Center on November 21-23. The total exhibition area of 2018 HORTI CHINA is around 27,000 square meters. It is expected that more than 400 companies will participate in this exhibition, including country pavilions from the Netherlands, Italy, France, Japan and so on. The show connects the world with China an international event for growing, harvesting and preservation technologies.

In recent years, Shanghai has taken the initiative to benchmark international and advance trials, and has accelerated its entry into the globally influential science and technology innovation center. With the enterprise as the mainstay, it has continued to carry out overseas agricultural investment and achieved excellent results. In 2016, Shanghai's foreign agricultural investment flow was 726 million US dollars. The accumulated foreign agricultural investment stock was 2.665 billion US dollars over the years, and the flow and stock were the first in the country.

Sitting on the advantages of location, capital and market, the conditions for Shanghai agricultural enterprises to go abroad and introduce are unique. To stand out in overseas, Shanghai agricultural enterprises are not only implementing mergers and acquisitions tactics, but aiming at the entire industrial chain, forming the entire chain from the field to the production and processing to import and export trade, creating an “overseas + domestic” industrial platform and exploring new business models. Committed to achieving a win-win situation for economic and social benefits.

The introduction of technology has driven the transformation and upgrading of high-tech. In São Paulo, Brazil, there is a 5,000 square meter intelligent greenhouse rose garden. The “Made in China” label on every greenhouse is the best proof of the introduction, digestion and re-export of greenhouse  technology in China's facilities industry. These intelligent greenhouses are all from Shanghai Dushi Green Engineering Co., Ltd. Another Shanghai company, Shanghai Irrist Co., Ltd., successfully won the bid for the supply of intelligent irrigation equipment in the modern facility agriculture project in Egypt in July 2017 with a complete set of high-quality product system and excellent system service capability. The total amount is 138 million RMB, involving a full set of intelligent irrigation systems in tens of thousands of acres of greenhouses.

The two companies mentioned above are both members of the SFAEA.


SFAEA hopes to build an international platform for members. It is hoped that the global horticultural industry will see the quality of “Made in Shanghai” through booth’s display. SFAEA also wishes visitors to see the status of Shanghai's facility agriculture and the development trends. SFAEA will build a joint pavilion with members with a total area of ​​96 square meters on HORTI CHINA, booth number 2HF018-2HG022. Looking forward to seeing you on site!

It is committed to formulating standards and specifications for the industry, conducting industry statistics, and publishing industry information.
