Vietnam’s economic and industry recovery has driven exhibitors to make a strong return to MTA VIETNAM in 2010. According to Vietnam’s General Statistics Office (GSO), the country’s economy will grow by about six per cent in the first quarter of this year, nearly double the rate for the same quarter of last year. In recent years, Vietnam has become one of the most attractive destinations for Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). In 2009, the country saw US$21.48 billion in FDI, according to the Ministry of Planning and Investment (MoPI), with the manufacturing industry being one of the top interests of investors. The industry attracted a capital sum of US$2.97 billion last year.
“Vietnam’s high rate of payout for capital construction largely contributed to the recovery of the country’s economy last year, making it an attractive export destination,” said Mr. William Lim, Project Director for MTA VIETNAM from the show’s organiser, Singapore Exhibition Services. “With outlook looking positive, manufacturers in Vietnam are well-positioned to capitalise on the upturn. MTA VIETNAM2010 plays a key role in supporting the industry’s growth by bringing in the most productive technologies and solutions. As an international, professional business-to-business event, the show will see a large volume of relevant trade buyers from Vietnam and the rest of the world come to the show to network and explore business opportunities.”
Vietnamese government and associations continue their support for the show. These include Ministry of Industry & Trade, Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry and People’s Committee of HCMC.
Other associations who have endorsed MTA VIETNAM include the Vietnam Automation Association, Vietnam Automobile Manufacturers’ Association, Vietnam Association of Mechanical Industry, Vietnam Electronic Industries Association, Vietnam Steel Association and Vietnam Society of Automotive Engineers.
MTA VIETNAM2009 attracted 7,270 local and overseas visitors to view exhibits showcased by 234 exhibiting companies from 20 countries/regions.
