Viet Nam News -HÀ NỘI — The fourth international precision engineering, machine tools and metalworking exhibition (MTA HANOI 2016) opened in Hà Nội yesterday.
The exhibition was co-organised by the Singapore Exhibition Services and local organiser VCCI Exhibition Service Co., Ltd.
This year’s exhibition attracted 175 enterprises from 19 countries and territories, including four international pavilions from South Korea, Singapore and Taiwan.
Enterprises exhibited products by many international brands with modern and advanced technologies such as metal cutting and forming machines, metrology, and other supporting systems and tools.
Speaking at the opening ceremony, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Đỗ Thắng Hải said that MTA HANOI 2016 was an opportunity for local businesses to access the advanced technology of the world to improve production efficiency as well as increasing product value.
At the same time, it was also a chance for local businesses to update information and experience in science and advanced technological solutions from international companies, as well as seeking more co-operation opportunities and business investment, the deputy minister added.
The deputy minister also urged Vietnamese mechanical enterprises to put more effort into researching and manufacturing in order to further develop the sector in the times to come.
The event had secured its position in northern Vietnamese industry after many successful exhibitions, connecting enterprises with trending new achievements and technologies in the world, said BT Tee, a representative from Singapore Exhibition Services.
After the MTA HANOI 2016, the organisation board has decided to hold the MTA HANOI event annually instead of biannually. There will be also a series of sideline seminars accompanying the exhibition.
The exhibition will continue until April 28. — VNS
