Three support industry exhibitions will be held in Hanoi from September 4-6, Thailand ’s Reed Tradex Co has announced.

The Reed Tradex-hosted Vietnam Manufacturing Expo 2013 will combine four international exhibitions on machinery and technology for specific industries.

Its components will include InterPlas Vietnam for plastic and rubber, InterMold Vietnam for mold and dye making and Automotive Vietnam on automation for production and assembly lines.

It is expected to attract over 10,000 local industrialists who will examine the latest technology, solutions and services provided by 200 participating companies from around the world.

Around 50 Japanese companies will showcase components and parts they hope to sell in Vietnam while local firms will showcase domestically manufactured products at the upcoming fifth Vietnam-Japan Exhibition on Support Industries.

The event will be co-organised by the Japan External Trade Organisation (JETRO) and the Trade Promotion Agency.

“ Vietnam is a promising country for Japanese investors. It will become an industrialised nation with sufficient supply of raw materials in the near future,” said chief representative of JETRO in Hanoi Hirokazu Yamaoka.

“The three expos will be a real industrial platform for buyers and sellers to meet and wider business networks, particularly Japanese investors, to expand their operations in Vietnam ,” he said.-VNA
