More than 110 domestic and foreign businesses are expected to take part in the 2015 International Exhibition Fair for Environment and Energy Technology (Entech Hanoi) which aims to promote energy conservation and environmental protection.

The five-day event will open at the Hanoi International Exhibition Centre at 91 Tran Hung Dao Street on May 20, featuring 165 booths and expecting to draw 4,000 visitors, announced Deputy Director of the Hanoi Centre for Energy Conservation under the municipal Department of Industry and Trade at a press conference on May 11.

Businesses from the Republic of Korea—which recently signed a free trade agreement (FTA) with Vietnam—brought a wide range of new-cutting edge products to the event, such as buildings, solar accumulators and oil and gas processing equipment.

Enterprises from the Czech Republic introduced gas and dust treatment technology, and those from Sweden and Japan introduced energy-saving and environmental protection technologies.

The Vietnamese pavilion showcased electronic bikes and energy-saving equipment in garment-textiles, footwear and construction.

Last year, the event led to 640 transactions and 160 signed technology transfer contracts worth 9.5 million USD.-VNA
