Two exhibitions on the supporting industry will be held at the International Exhibition Centre in Ha Noi from August 14-16.

The Viet Nam Manufacturing Expo (VME 2019) will be hosted by Thailand’s Reed Tradex Co, while the Viet Nam-Japan Supporting Industries Expo will be co-organised by Japan External Trade Organisation (JETRO) and the Trade Promotion Agency (Vietrade).

The upcoming events aim to not only help Vietnamese firms sharpen their competitiveness edge in the domestic and global playing grounds, but also strengthen partnerships between Vietnamese and Japanese firms involved in supporting industries, organisers said a press conference in the capital city on Thursday.

VME, one of the leading expos on machinery and technology for manufacturing and supporting industries in Viet Nam, will connect 200 companies from 20 countries with 10,000 buyers and business partners, according to Reed Tradex Co.

In his speech at a press conference, Vietrade Deputy General Director Le Hoang Tai spoke about the importance of supporting industries in the process of industrialisation and modernisation.

Vietnamese enterprises in supporting industries are now capable of applying modern quality management standards, improving the quality of their products, and participating deeply in global supply chains, he said. They also help increase the localisation rate in significant manufacturing industries such as automobiles, textiles and garments, footwear and electronics, Tai added. — VNS
