– The 2019 Hardware & Handtools Expo will take place from December 4-7 in Ho Chi Minh City, bringing together 300 businesses from 18 countries and territories worldwide, according to organisers.

The event will gather suppliers from a wide range of spheres like manufacturing, production, mechanics, construction and DIY devices, a representative of the Vietnam National Trade Fair and Advertising Company (Vinesad) said.   

Themed “The Fourth Industrial Revolution and global supply chain,” the expo, in its fourth edition, aims to improve the quality of connectivity in various sectors.

It is expected to draw the attention of prestigious international brands to the big domestic market, thus attracting more investments and promoting technological transfer and cooperation in building the global supply chain.

Through the event, the organisers also hope to promote local brands, boost exports and stimulate the consumption of domestic products.

Frank Yang, development director for the Asia-Pacific region of WERA – German manufacturer of screwdriving tools, said Vietnam is a potential market.

Therefore, the exhibition provides a venue for his firm to access both local and foreign manufacturers in the machinery and tool sectors. /.
