The third Vietbuild held in the city this year features more than 1,500 booths set up by more than 300 exhibitors from 18 countries and territories, including France, the US, Russia, Turkey, the UK, Australia, and China.
"On show are property projects, electrical equipment, doors and accessories, intelligent housing systems, internal and external decorative items, building materials, solar energy systems and others," said Nguyễn Trần Nam, chairman of the Việt Nam Real Estate Association and head of the organisation board.
The exhibition, besides introducing participating companies’ latest products and technologies, would also feature seminars and forums for the companies to meet, exchange information and explore future co-operation, he said.
Nguyễn Bá Huân, general director of the Nhi Long Joint Stock Company, said his company is showcasing a wide range of carpets and rugs imported from Turkey and Belgium, the two largest producers and exporters in the world.
