HCM CITY (Biz Hub) — Propak Viet Nam, Viet Nam's premier processing and packaging industry event, will return with the largest and most international range of technology and process solutions for the country's growing Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) industry.

Propak Viet Nam 2016, organised from March 1-3, 2016 at Saigon Exhibition and Convention Centre (SECC) in HCM City, will be a timely business platform to support the local industry with new opportunities and challenges when Viet Nam successfully inks the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) with 11 other countries.

It is expected to feature more than 370 international and local companies from 31 countries and regions, including eight international groups, and welcome around 7,500 trade visitors.

"The 2016 edition of the Propak Viet Nam event looks to be the largest on record – a clear indication of the industry's progress in Viet Nam, for both the export and domestic sectors," said BT Tee, deputy chief, Viet Nam Representative Office, Singapore Exhibition Services, the organizer of Propak Viet Nam 2016.

"We expect to see more positive developments through the many bilateral FTAs which the Vietnamese government has signed with partner nations, plus the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement which will bring opportunities to food exporters, together with the expected healthy competition as barriers to entry into Viet Nam's domestic markets are lowered."

Propak Viet Nam 2015 gathered 337 processing and packaging technology and solution providers, and attracted 6,937 trade visitors from 28 countries and regions. — VNS
