The 2015 International Transportation Exhibition enables domestic and foreign partners to form networking and facilitate technology transfer, said National Assembly Vice Chairman Uong Chu Luu at the opening ceremony in Hanoi on July 8.

In his speech, Luu urged the entire transport sector to embrace breakthrough solutions synchronously and comprehensively while rallying resources at home and abroad, since transportation growth is vital to socio-economic development and national defence in the international integration progress.

The exhibition saw the presence of nearly 50 exhibitors in and outside the country, including L-Orange (China), Emirates Airlines (Dubai), FLIR systems (Singapore), Vietnam Airlines, Vinalines, among others.

The event also introduces the 70-year history of the Vietnamese transport sector, orientations to transport infrastructure development and links up Vietnam with participating countries in the field, said Transport Deputy Minister Nguyen Ngoc Dong.

Relevant seminars on transport infrastructure will also be held during the event, which will run until July 10.-VNA
