Foreign companies join manufacturing trade show

HCM CITY: More than 300 exhibitors from 21 countries and territories will showcase their latest products and services at Vietnam's leading manufacturing solutions trade show early next month.

The expo, held from July 2 – 5 at the Sai Gon Exhibition&Convention Center, is organised by Singapore Exhibition Services Pte Ltd and VCCI Exhibition Service Co Ltd.

Eleven countries including Japan, France, Germany, Italy, South Korea, Singapore, Thailand and Taiwan will have multiple pavilions at the MTA (Metrology, Tools and Automation) Vietnam 2013 show.

It will focus on precision engineering, machine tools and metalworking, organisers said.

They said the international component of MTA Vietnam 2013 is very high at 81 per cent. Major brand names in many areas will be present, they added.

For instance, the world's top five machine tool exporting countries and regions – Japan, Germany, Italy, Taiwan and Switzerland – are joining this year's show.

William Lim, Project Director for MTA Vietnam 2013, said the increasing number of international corporations that have set up manufacturing facilities in Viet Nam is also a major pull factor for major international machine tool brands.

Japan dominates

As a reflection of the growing presence of Japanese manufacturers in Viet Nam, this year's show will feature 38 exhibitors from the East Asian giant, an increase of 58 per cent over the number present at the inaugural edition of MTA Vietnam in 2005.

The Japanese pavilion this year comprises 22 companies that are mainly small to medium-sized enterprises producing equipment like hand tools, electronic components, gears, measuring instruments, and machine tools.

Kazuhiko Osato, Director of JETRO (Japan External Trade Organization) HCM City office, said, "This is the 7th time we are exhibiting at the MTA series in Viet Nam, and it is our biggest group of exhibitors to date. The increase of Japanese manufacturers in Viet Nam bodes very well for smaller Japanese manufacturing solution companies as it provides the link to break into the Vietnamese market."

MTA Viet Nam 2013 will also feature a series of exciting competitions and seminars, including Vietnam Welding Skills, Vietnam's Welding Technology seminar – Today And The Future Vision; Using Management Tools to Improve Quality in Manufacturing Industries and New Approaches to Design, Machining&Manufacturing.

As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
