The fourth Mining Viet Nam 2018, an international mining and minerals recovery exhibition and conference, will be held on April 18-20 at the International Centre for Exhibition in Ha Noi.
Mining Viet Nam is considered one of the most trustworthy exhibitions in the mining industry in the country as well as Asia-Pacific region.
“Since its first edition in 2012, with 3,290 industry attendees from 26 countries, the exhibition has become a bridge to effectively connect local and foreign firms as well as bring advanced technologies and machines to the market,” said BT Tee, general director of UBM VES Company, the exhibition’s organiser, at a press meet in Ha Noi on Thursday.
Covering an area of more than 4,000sq.m, the exhibition is expected to attract 170 participants from 22 countries worldwide. Of this, 80 per cent are expected to be foreign companies from the UK, Czech Republic, Germany, Singapore, Russia, Australia and China. The exhibition is expected to draw over 4,500 visitors.
Many leading firms and suppliers, such as Fong Chuan Machinery, Germanbelt, Hamakyu, Mine Arc Systems, Vinza and Weir Minerals, will participate in the event. The Viet Nam National Coal and Minerals Group (Vinacomin), the country’s largest producer in the mining industry, will also join the exhibition, which has received the support of ministries, local industry associations and trade promotion boards.
“Despite the mining industry in the world going through a difficult time, Mining Viet Nam 2018 will include more group and country pavilions as well as technology displays. This shows the optimism of the mining industry in Viet Nam, thanks to policies encouraging mineral exports and increasing local demand,” Tee said.
The event will also organise special conferences for improving mineral capacity and safety standards in the mining industry. — VNS
