Representatives from nearly ten Vietnamese companies along with 10,000 participants of 400 firms from 35 countries around the world are attending the 7thBuild Eco Xpo (BEXASIA) taking place in Singapore from September 1-3.
The expo is generally considered a leading business forum in the region for construction material producers, construction bidders and designers. This year’s event features the latest in environmentally friendly materials and green building technology.
The organizing board announced more than 300 business meetings are scheduled during the three-day event along with many seminars and conferences on eco-construction, technical solutions and advanced technology in construction.
Louise Chua, BEX Asia project director, said she welcomes Vietnamese businesses to the event and expressed her hope that participating businesses can share experience in developmental trends of eco-construction which can benefit Vietnam.
Meanwhile, Nguyen Viet Chi, Trade Counsellor to Singapore, said construction materials, particularly float glass and stone sand, are key products Vietnam exports to Singapore.
The event provides Vietnamese businesses an opportunity to locate cooperation partners and expand exports, in addition to learning of the latest technologies in the industry.
In the first seven months of the year, Vietnam grossed around US$200 million in revenue from exporting the products to the market, Chi said.
Many Singaporean companies attending the event have also expressed a keen interest in the real estate market in Vietnam, Chi said.
