HCM CITY — The sixth edition of Plastics and Rubber Vietnam 2016 held earlier this month at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Centre (SECC) attracted 6,402 trade visitors including 85 members of the press from more than 30 countries and regions.
As many as 208 group delegations from well-known companies and buyers visited the event, including Binh Minh Plastics Ltd, Dynaplast Packaging Vietnam, Dong Nai Plastic Jsc, Mechanics Construction And Foodstuff Joint Stock Company, VRG Sa Do Rubber Thread JSC.
Many of the 149 exhibitors from 21 countries and regions displayed their latest products and services for the Vietnamese market.
Commenting on the demand for new technologies by local manufacturers, Carl F Woolf, International Trade Adviser for UK Trade and Investment, said: “Vietnamese industry is currently undergoing rapid development and is where China was a few years ago.”
“Although this is the first time that the British Pavilion has exhibited in Việt Nam, we found that there are a lot of good opportunities for our company members to develop their business here,” he said.
Industry thought leaders addressed issues and shared best practices with the industry at seminars held over three days at the event.
Organised by the Multi Engineering Solutions Laboratory, the sessions were well attended by more than 150 delegates.
The next edition of Plastics and Rubber Vietnam will return from March 20 – 22, 2018 at SECC.
