Hanoi (VNA) – The Vietnam Manufacturing Expo (VME) 2017 kicked off in Hanoi on April 26, displaying latest technologies of 200 leading brands from 20 countries, including Japan, the Republic of Korea, Taiwan (China) and Thailand.

A wide range of solutions and technologies serving production towards Industry 4.0 are showcased at the event, which aims to promote business development and information exchanges in the manufacturing industry.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Isara Burintramart, managing director of Thailand’s Reed Tradex Company, said Industry 4.0 will be a new breakthrough for the industrial sector.

Industry 4.0 requires Vietnamese human resources to have more skills to undertake complicated production roles, he said.

The expo will run along with other two exhibitions “Industrial Components and Subcontracting Vietnam” and “Vietnam Sheet Metal”.

Various programmes to enhance knowledge and partner networks will be held during the event, including a technical skill contest for welders and a forum on new technology application in mechanical manufacturing.

Thailand Ambassador to Vietnam Manopchai Vongphakdi spoke highly of the Vietnamese Government’s favourable policies to encourage investment through improved infrastructure and better human resources.

He said that the VME 2017 will be a golden opportunity for manufacturers, engineers and industries to enhance capacity through new technologies, ideals, sources of inspiration and international business networks.-VNA
