HCM CITY (VNS) — Four exhibitions opened yesterday in HCM City showcasing modern metalworking and other products and technologies.
The first, "Business Alliance for Support Industry in HCM City," is organised by the HCM City Investment and Trade Promotion Centre and Japan External Trade Organisation.
It attracted more than 90 Japanese and domestic companies from the automobile, motorcycle, electronics, and other sectors.
"We have a big space for business exchanges in five areas: moulds, injection-moulds and presses, electric and electronic parts, transport machinery parts, and metal processing," Hirotaka Yasuzumi, managing director of JETRO in HCM City, said.
This would help companies find partners easily, he added.
Two other exhibitions, Metalex Vietnam and Nepcon Vietnam, bring together 500 well-known brands from 25 countries and territories.
Duangdej Yuaikwamdee, deputy managing director of Reed Tradex, the organiser, said: "Industrialists can discover how they can improve their productivity with the right machine tools and metalworking technologies."
Indian engineering show
Indian engineering exhibition INDEE Viet Nam has attracted 85 leading engineering Indian companies who are showcasing some world-class products.
Preeti Saran, India's ambassador to Viet Nam, said the Engineering Export Promotion Council of India (EEPC) organised events like this all over the world, and this is their first exhibition in Viet Nam.
The exhibitors are from diverse fields like machinery tools for the automobile, technology, agriculture, and textile industries.
These are very important sectors for Viet Nam, she said.
"Viet Nam is a pillar of India's Look East Policy," she said, adding, "Our bilateral trade and investment relationship is growing day by day."
Yet trade and investment co-operation between the two countries do not match their potential, she said, expressing her hope that the Indian engineering exhibition would further boost Indian trade and investment relations with Viet Nam.
Anupam Shah, chairman of EEPC India, said: "I feel that automotive components and assembly is a big market for Indian companies in Viet Nam."
The four expos, at the Sai Gon Exhibition and Convention Centre in District 7 and to run until October 12, are expected to welcome more than 10,000 visitors. — VNS
