They will have a business matching area for foreign firms and Vietnamese and Korean component suppliers, a sourcing conference for connecting components suppliers with product manufacturers and a seminar on the fourth industrial revolution.
They will display industrial and supporting industry products made by Vietnamese and foreign firms, typical supporting industry products made in HCM City, machinery and metalworking tools, supporting industry products for the technology, medical, tourism, automation sectors, machinery and related industry services, and others.
