More than 292 exhibitors from over 28 countries and territories showcased new products and advanced technologies at the three-day events Propak Vietnam 2016 and Plastic & Rubber Vietnam 2016 held last week in Ho Chi Minh City.

Propak Vietnam 2016 is the leading international promotion event for the growing Vietnamese food, drink, and pharmaceutical industries, featuring packaging solutions, confectionery production machinery, food ingredients, and a wide range of other products.

Meanwhile, the sixth Plastic & Rubber Vietnam is offering manufacturers a range of high-end technologies and equipment catering to all factory production demands, and is being held concurrently with Propak.

"This year’s Propak Vietnam is the biggest edition since its first launch in 2005, which indicates the growing demand for product packaging, driven both by exports and domestic consumption," said Tran Viet Dung, deputy director of Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry Exhibition Centre (VCCI).

He added that the events encourage industrialists to develop their businesses and seek new technologies and innovations, while networking with world-famous companies. Among the exhibitors, the Italian and German pavilions attract a substantial number of visitors and buyers, thanks to the advanced machinery and technologies showcased.

According to Vera Fritsche, the host of the German Pavilion, there is an increasing need for modern and attractive packaging solutions and Vietnam‘s demand for plastic and machinery is growing fast. In 2014, Germany, again, was one of the country’s most important sales partners in food processing and packaging machinery, following close behind China.

“Propak Vietnam 2016 and Plastic & Rubber Vietnam 2016 are the most important platforms for German companies to present their products and solutions to the Vietnamese industry,” she stated.
