HCM CITY (Biz Hub) — Four mega exhibitions, METALEX Vietnam, Business Alliance for Supporting Industry, NEPCON Vietnam,
and Industrial Components & Subcontracting Vietnam, held earlier this month in HCM City, attracted more than 18,630 trade visitors from 48 countries.

Isara Burintramart, managing director of Reed Tradex Co., Ltd., which organised them, said: "We selected Viet Nam not only for being Asia's top destination for investment but also for its growing role as a manufacturing hub.

"Industrialists know that opportunities are here, and they will need to move quickly no matter how rapidly the changing business environment may be.

"I believe the powers of four events combine will not only foster better collaboration and communication between industrialists, but will also encourage the exchange of best practices among local and overseas business delegates."

The events featured 3,139 exhibitors and more than 500 booths and 11 international pavilions.

The expos also included a "Koma Taisen" competition won by the Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province Vocational College's Team 2, engineering demonstrations, technology presentations and a hand-soldering competition won by Nguyen Van Thanh Thuo of Spartronics Vietnam Co., Ltd.

Park Young Tahk, executive vice chairman of the Korea Association of Machinery Industry, said: "Viet Nam is one of Korea's important overseas markets for machinery and metalworking solutions. Hence, we decided to bring 12 companies under the Korea Pavilion at Metalex Vietnam to raise awareness of Korean technologies and develop strong yet resilient business relationships with potential customers."

 "We believe that high quality-products from the Tokyo Pavilion can help Vietnamese companies grow and also encourage new players to enter supporting industries," said Tatsuya Noma, senior director of the commerce and industry division, Bureau of Industrial and Labor Affairs, Tokyo Metropolitan Government.

Ronnie Wong, chief operating officer of the Association of Electronic Industries (AEIS), said that the electrical and electronics industries in Viet Nam are growing at tremendous speed and they are prominently promoted by the Government. Viet Nam needs supporting industries to accelerate the growth.

"AEIS brought 25 companies to Nepcon Vietnam to support industries as well as set up branches and joint ventures."

Next year Metalex Vietnam will be held from October 4 to 6 in HCM City. Nepcon Vietnam will celebrate its 10th anniversary when it is held in Ha Noi from September 13 to 15. — VNS
