HCM CITY (VNS) — An International Exhibition on Plastics, Packaging and Rubber opened at HCM City's Sai Gon Exhibition and Convention Centre yesterday.
The three-day event has brought exhibitors from India, mainland China, Taiwan, Singapore, Korea and Iran who are showcasing their latest machinery and technologies used in the plastics and rubber industries.
Packaging machinery and materials are also on display.
A highlight is the participation by a large Iranian manufacturer of polymers, Amir Kabir Petroleum Co.
Ho Duc Lam, chairman of the Viet Nam Plastics Association, said the exhibition would enable the Vietnamese plastics industry to achieve greater heights in the coming years.
The sector is forecast to grow at 20 -25 per cent in the coming years.
With the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and free trade agreements soon to be in place, Viet Nam, besides catering to the growing domestics market, will also grow its exports exponentially, meaning the country needs highly productive machinery, new technologies and the next generation of raw materials and additives.
There will be international seminars on plastics today.
The 3-in-1 exhibition, organised by Enterprising Fairs India Private Limited, a B2B Exhibition company from India, in collaboration with the Viet Nam Plastic Association and Viet Nam Rubber Association, closes tomorrow. — VNS
