More than 100 businesses have registered to attend the 6th International Trade Fair for Construction, Building and Mining - Machinery, Equipment, Materials, Vehicles, Technology and Services (Conbuild Vietnam 2012).
The event will be held simultaneously with the 2nd International Trade Fair for Electricity and Lighting by Messe München International Asia Pte Ltd (MMI Asia) at the Vietnam Exhibition Fair Centre (VEFC) in Hanoi from December 4-7.
MMI Asia Chairman and CEO Ronald Unterburger said that this year the two exhibitions will focus on the mining industry, as Vietnam has become more aware of the potential for exploiting its natural resources and has improved administrative procedures to create a favourable environment for investors.
The construction industry in the country has also developed well thanks to the fast pace of urbanization.
The event has still attracted special attention of businesses from Germany, China, the Republic of Korea, Singapore and Malaysia, despite their many ongoing economic difficulties.
Dang Kim Giao from the Ministry of Construction says Conbuild Vietnam 2012 will help domestic enterprises gain access to advanced, cutting-edge equipment and technologies and foreign businesses learn more about local markets and policies before they invest in Vietnam.
The organizing board has also cooperated with the Vietnam Mining Science and Technology Association and the Vietnam Oil and Gas Group to host a national conference on the theme, "Strategy for Vietnam Minerals Development - From Vision to Action," as well as others on energy-saving and environmentally friendly materials and opportunities for cooperation between German and Vietnamese construction businesses.
