Hanoi (VNA) – The Vietnam International Trade Fair for Construction – Machinery, Equipment, Technology, Vehicles and Materials (Contech Vietnam 2017) will take place at the National Exhibition Construction Centre in Hanoi from April 25-28.

Vice President of the Vietnam Construction Association Thai Duy Sam told a press conference on April 20 that construction is one of the sectors with the growth rates of above 15 percent in Vietnam over the past few years. The robust growth has made the country a emerging attractive market for construction machinery and equipment in Southeast Asia.

The trade fair will provide a platform for exhibitors to not only introduce new technologies but also seek partners and promote technological transfer, he said, adding that through such interactions, more effective and environmentally-friendly construction solutions will be applied to improve businesses’ competitive advantages.

On display at the fair will be products and services for civil construction, industrial construction and infrastructure; building materials; and technologies, machinery and equipment of transportation and mining industries.

A series of conferences and seminars will be held on the sidelines of the event, including seminars on environmental protection technology in the mining industry, and green, energy-efficient building materials.

It is estimated that about 200 domestic and foreign exhibitors will participate in the fair, including those from the EU, Japan, Singapore, the Republic of Korea, Taiwan (China), Malaysia and China.-VNA
