HÀ NỘI — Mining Việt Nam 2018, an international mining and minerals recovery exhibition opened its doors yesterday at the International Centre for Exhibition in Hà Nội.
The three-day expo attracted 137 enterprises from 18 countries and territories, including the UK, Czech Republic, Germany, Singapore, China and Australia. They are showcasing equipment, machinery and technologies used for mining in the 4,000 square metre site.
Director of the Vinacomin Institute of Science and Technology Trần Tú Ba said that Vinacomin was willing to work with partners to bring technological advances used in mining to Việt Nam.
Despite the global mining industry facing a recent slowdown, Mining Việt Nam 2018 continues to attract the participation of many domestic and international exhibitors.
"This shows the optimism of the mining industry in Việt Nam, thanks to policies encouraging mineral exports and an increase in local demand,” said BT Tee, general director of UBM VES Company, the exhibition’s organiser said.
During the event, three seminars will gather speakers to discuss breakthroughs and sustainability in mining, as well as advances in mining and underground works, and the use of modern technology in mining and management. They will also talk about the restoration of mineral resources, and environmental protection.
Asia Miner, a well known Australian magazine specialising in mining and the exploitation of mineral resources, will continue its partnership with Việt Nam in the Regional Technical Conference Việt Nam 2018, with speakers from major foreign firms taking part.
Participants will also discuss measures to improve mining output and safety standards in the field. The biennial event took place for the first time in 2012 and is considered one of the most trustworthy exhibitions in the mining industry in Việt Nam as well as in the wider Asia-Pacific region. It has become a bridge connecting domestic and foreign firms and diversifying advanced technologies and equipment.
This year’s event is expected to draw more than 4,500 visitors. — VNS
