More than 310 exhibitors from 15 countries and territories are displaying their products at the Viet Nam International Exhibition on Industrial Machinery Equipment, Material and Products (Vinamac Expo) that has opened in HCM City.

On show are industrial machinery and equipment, metals, metallurgy, metal pipes, steel, metalworking, automation technologies and systems, chemicals, paints and coatings, digital textile printing technologies and equipment, and others.

There will be seminars and conferences on new trends and new technologies in metal working.

According to the organisers, the expo aims to enhance trade promotion and co-operation between local and foreign businesses in the machinery equipment sector.

Dao Phan Long, chairman of the Viet Nam Association of Mechanical Industry, said the mechanical engineering industry would use advanced technologies to make products of international standards, and would further enter the global value chain and make efficient use of energy.

The sector would develop a professional, disciplined and highly skilled workforce and design and manufacture enough products to meet domestic demand, he said.

It would focus on developing a number of sub-sectors like tractors, agricultural machinery, construction equipment, industrial equipment, and electrical equipment, he added.

Organised by the Viet Nam Advertisement and Fair Exhibition JSC, the annual event is being held together with the Viet Nam International Exhibition on Chemical Industry and the International Textile Printing Technology and Equipment Exhibition at the Sai Gon Exhibition and Convention Centre.

They will go on until December 1. — VNS
