HCM CITY (VNS) — Southeast Asia's largest machine-tool and metalworking technology fair Metalex, to be held next month in Thailand, will provide Vietnamese firms with the chance to update their technologies and discover new business opportunities, the organiser said.
Duangdej Yuaikwarmdee, deputy managing director of Thailand-based Reed Tradex Company, the organiser, said the four-day event beginning on November 19 in Bangkok would see 2,700 global brands from 50 countries and territories display thousands of new machines and cutting-edge technologies.
There would be conferences and forums on the sidelines of the event on latest industry trends, technologies, and strategies, he said.
With the ASEAN Economic Community set to come into existence next year, all ASEAN countries need to bolster their industrial capacity, he said.
To remain competitive, Vietnamese firms need to invest in modern technologies, he said.
Reed Tradex and its partners organised four large supporting industry expos - Metalex Viet Nam, Nepcon Viet Nam, Business Alliance for Supporting Industry, and Industrial Components and Subcontracting Viet Nam – in HCM City from October 9 to 11.
