HCM City (VNA) – Domestic and foreign firms operating in the fields of rubber, paper, coatings and paper ink are displaying their products at international expositions that synchronously kicked off in Ho Chi Minh City on June 13.

The expositions - Rubber & Tyre Vietnam, Paper Vietnam and Coatings Vietnam 2018 - draw the participation of 250 units from 15 countries and territories worldwide like India, Japan, the Republic of Korea, China, Malaysia, Singapore, the US, Germany, the UK and Vietnam, said Min Shui, a representative of the organising board.

On display are machines, equipment and materials used in the paper, rubber, tyre, coatings and printing ink industries. The events offer an opportunity for businesses to explore new products, services and technologies, while seeking partners.

Rubber & Tyre Vietnam 2018 focuses on machines and technologies in the rubber production sector.

Paper Vietnam 2018 is the only international exposition on the paper and pulp industry in Vietnam.

Meanwhile, Coatings Vietnam 2018 is the most professional expo on the coatings and printing ink industry in the country.

Vo Hoang An, Vice President and Secretary General of the Vietnam Rubber Association, pointed out challenges caused by the integration process to the domestic rubber sector.

Given this, associations have proactively stepped up trade promotion activities under different forms, including trade fairs to introduce new products and technologies, and connect producers and consumers, he said.

K. Srikar Reddy, Indian Consul General in Ho Chi Minh City, said up to 50 Indian businesses are participating in the events to introduce their products and set up partnerships with Vietnamese firms, looking towards the target of advancing the trade venue between the two countries to 15 billion USD in 2020.

Within the framework of the expos, there will be symposiums with the participation of many domestic and foreign experts.

The events will last until June 15.-VNA
