The mining industry will come to the fore at the International Exhibition of Construction Technologies, Vietconstech 2014, which is slated for December 10-13 in Hanoi.

The event is an opportunity for both domestic and foreign businesses to introduce new technologies and equipment as well as seek partners and promote trade.

The estimated 200-booth exposition will also help increase the capacity of entrepreneurs in global competitiveness.

A number of seminars on construction technologies and environmentally-friendly building materials will shape part of the event.

A similar exhibition was first held in Vietnam in 2012 with the participation of 80 businesses.

The event will be organised by the ministries of Construction, Science and Technology; Agriculture and Rural Development; Natural Resources and Environment; and Industry and Trade.-VNA
