The 2017 edition of Vietnam’s international metalworking trade exhibition was officially declared open in a grand ribbon cutting ceremony, which was presided by the honorable presence of Mme. Ureerat Ratanaprukse, Consule-General, the Royal Thai Consulate-General in Ho Chi Minh City, Mr. Suttisak Wilanan, Deputy Managing Director, Reed Tradex Co., Ltd. and influential international industry leaders who voiced their confidence in Vietnam. The ceremony marked a new chapter for the supporting and manufacturing industries.

After the spectacular opening, industrialists from Vietnam and other countries flocked into the exhibition hall in order to find modern machinery, developments in metalworking and networking opportunities with key players. Meanwhile, exhibitors were busy explaining the function of their machinery to buyers who traveled from far flung places. The crowded hall and business discussions among participants are turning Ho Chi Minh City into an international metalworking hub.

It’s a big day for manufacturers with two days left to engage in networking opportunities, join business-inducing events and source the latest technologies.

During the opening ceremony, Consul-General of the Royal Thai Consulate-General, Mme. Ureerat Ratanaprukse and Reed Tradex’s Deputy Managing Director, Mr. Suttisak Wilanan delivered a speech that encouraged manufacturers to explore new solutions and networks that will optimize their business expansion.
Mrs. Ureerat Patanapruke
Consul-General of Thailand to Ho Chi Minh City
“One of the key messages reflects from His Excellency Nguyen Xuan Phuc’s official visit to Thailand in August is the emphasis on the potential of Vietnam’s and Thailand’s strengths as an important hub for the sub-regional production and supply chain. And our two leaders further reaffirmed their determination to support the substantial investment, particularly in fields fundamental to Vietnam’s economic growth, such as industrial estate development, energy, construction materials, garments and textiles, agricultural and food processing electronics and automotive components. Therefore, the events today are definitely contributing to the ‘greater flow of investment’ not only between Thailand and Vietnam as envisaged by our leaders but also among ASEAN countries and beyond to prosper together.”
Mr. Suttisak Wilanan
Deputy Managing Director
“Manufacturing is essential to the Vietnamese economy. Throughout the 20th century, the industry helps draw the entrepreneurial spirit of foreign investors and cemented Vietnam as one of a leading manufacturing hub in ASEAN. Now, facing the upcoming Industry 4.0, to stay ahead of the competition in the 21st century, manufacturers must improve their business to be more efficient, collaborative and agile than ever, so they could secure their competitive edge. That’s why METALEX Vietnam 2017 will play distinct roles in this effort.”

If you seek the latest electronics manufacturing and assembly technologies, the Electronics Assembly 2017 is the place for you to gain first experience with machinery, along with networking opportunities with companies under the Singapore Pavilion. This is your promising destination to minimize your production cost and boost efficiency.
