Around 148 companies from 29 countries and territories are attending the leading International Mining and Minerals Recovery Exhibition and Conference (Mining Vietnam 2012) which opened in Hanoi on March 7.

They are introducing their advanced technologies, equipment and services to deal with the challenges of minerals and natural resources recovery in Vietnam, as well as improving mining productivity.
