HA NOI (VNS)— The Mobile Viet Nam 2012 exhibition would help develop the country's lucrative mobile sector by creating an open forum for mobile operators, manufacturers and policy makers, organisers said.
The country's biggest mobile industry event, which will showcase hundreds of new mobile products and applications, expects to attract 50,000 visitors.
The four day exhibition, which will be held in Ha Noi from October 18, will also include a job fair offering employment opportunities in the telecoms sector.
According to Pham Hong Hai, head of the telecoms department under the Ministry of Information and Communications, the event would cover hot topics in the mobile sector such as price wars, policies and development strategies.
Viettel's general director Hoang Son said his company would share investment experiences at the event, especially overseas investment with other mobile operators.
Viettel has projects in six overseas countries spreading from Latin America to Africa and Asia.
While the Viet Nam Post and Telecommunications Group (VNPT) will focus on showcasing its 3G network, Sweden's Ericsson will talk about the benefits of 3G for mobile users.
Themed "The future of Viet Nam's mobile industry," the event is being co-organised by VCCI-Expo, CPI, MediaOne and AITI.
New mobile subscriptions in Viet Nam have skyrocketed in recent years, reaching 19 million in 2006, 25 million in 2007, 74 million in 2008, 98 million in 2009 and 127 million by the end of August 2012. — VNS
