VOV.VN - The Vietnam Manufacturing Expo (VME) 2022 kicked off on August 10 in Hanoi, drawing the participation of approximately 200 brands in the manufacturing and electronics industries from over 10 countries and territories globally.
As part of his opening speech at the event, Vu Trong Tai, general director of RX Tradex, emphasised that the event features effective business networking programmes to help firms in the mechanical and supporting industries seize upon opportunities to further get involved in the global supply chain.
Most notably, this year’s function involved the presence of major customers from North America seeking to purchase mechanical products in the construction, oil and gas, and automobile industries, which is expected to open up a wealth of export opportunities for small and medium-sized enterprises moving forward, Tai added.
Truong Thi Chi Binh, vice president and general secretary of the Vietnam Association for Supporting Industries, pointed out that local firms operating in the manufacturing and supporting industry are very keen on issues relating to automation, lean factory, and supply chain participation.
She added that these enterprises are in the process of automating production lines in their factories and need to stay updated and gain knowledge of the effective models that have been applied so far.
There will be a number of trade exchanges and seminars introducing the advanced technologies from the world’s leading brands, a consulting support programme for businesses and a ceremony held to honour industrial firms and supporting industry enterprises.
