HANOI: The Vietnam International Electronics & Smart Appliances Expo 2023 (IEAE Hanoi) opens at the International Centre for Exhibition (ICE) in Hanoi on Thursday (Nov 2).
Jointly organised by the Vietnam National Trade Fair & Advertising Company (Vinexad) and Chaoyu Expo of China, the three-day event aims to boost partnerships between Vietnamese businesses and foreign firms, and the development of a high-quality electronic consumer market in the country.
According to Vinexad, with a display area of 10,000sq m, this is one of the largest specialised exhibitions in Vietnam, which features tens of thousands of electrical and household electronic appliances, smart devices, computers, phones, accessories and game equipment, and electronic components and other products from over 200 businesses and producers.
IEAE Hanoi is a "technology fest" for the Vietnamese electronics market as well as the South-east Asian market in general, Vinexad said.
"China stands out as a significant trading partner for Vietnam, exporting a substantial volume of electronic products and smart devices to the country.
"In 2022, Vietnam's imports of computers, electronic products, household electrical appliances and components from China surpassed US$33 billion, accounting for over 31 per cent of Vietnam's total import turnover in this product category from around the world," said To Ngoc Son, Deputy Director General of the Asia-Africa Market Department under Vietnam's Ministry of Industry and Trade.
"Today's event carries immense significance, as it aims to enhance and strengthen the supply chain connections for electronic products and smart devices. This exhibition plays a vital role in promoting the growth of Vietnam's high-quality consumer electronics market."
"Trade promotion initiatives like this exhibition create new avenues for collaboration within the business community, helping to mitigate the adverse impacts of the global and regional economies.
"Furthermore, these efforts contribute to the continual development of trade relations between Vietnam and China, fostering deeper, stable and sustainable trade ties," he said.
Notably, IEAE Hanoi encourages the consumption of high-quality electronic and entertainment products, while committing to building an efficient and professional "one-stop shopping" platform, and providing a smart exhibition experience for buyers in Hanoi and across Vietnam.
In the framework of the event, forums and seminars are organised, focusing on the development of the electronics industry, household electrical appliances and smart devices, as well as solutions to promoting innovation and development in these sectors. — Vietnam News Network/ANN
