The events are the seventh Vietnam-Japan Support Industry Exhibition, an expo on equipment and technology and support industry for the electronic industry and an expo on Vietnamese support industry products.
They will be co-hosted by the Japan External Trade Organisation (JETRO) in Hanoi, Reed Tradex Co., Ltd of Thailand, the Ministry of Industry and Trade’s Vietnam Trade Promotion Agency and the Vietnam Electronic Industries Association.
Speaking at a press conference in Hanoi on June 15, Director of the Vietnam Trade Promotion Agency Bui Huy Son said the events are hoped to offer exhibitors opportunities to seek partners, thus promoting investment and trade cooperation between Vietnam and Japan.
Son said the Vietnamese Government is proactively assisting firms operating in the support industries in applying modern quality management systems, improving the quality and reliability of products, thus enabling them to join global production and supply chains.
Through the exhibitions, Vietnamese firms will be supported to increase the ratio of local contents in electric products and support industries.
Hironobu Kitagawa – Chief Representative of JETRO said the organisation published a book listing outstanding Vietnamese firms working in the manufacturing industry.
This will be a useful reference for Japanese enterprises and those from other countries, which are exploring opportunities to pour investment into Vietnam, he added.
Hironobu Kitagawa said the Vietnam-Japan Support Industry Exhibition will display the Pre-matching system for the first time, which allows enterprises to connect and exchange in a more effective way.
Suttisak Wilanan – Deputy Managing Director of Reed Tradex stressed that the organisation of the three exhibitions at the same time and same location will help increase business opportunities by three times and raise localisation index for Vietnam’s electronic industry.
Attended by over 200 leading brands from 20 countries and territories worldwide, the events will help Japanese manufacturers to meet and tighten links with local spare part manufacturers.
After the press conference, the organisers signed an agreement on cooperation to enhance the localisation ratio, promote the support industry in Vietnam.
