Viet Porlex'97 Merges With Maritime Vietnam For Asian Exhibition

Two renowned organizers of trade fairs — Germany's Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH, and the Netherlands'Amsterdam RAI have agreed to cooperate in the organization of maritime exhibitions in Asia. As a result of this collaboration, Viet Portex '97 — initially planned for November 1997 — will amalgamate with Maritime Vietnam in the Maritime Vietnam In Conjunction With Viet Portex '97 exhibition scheduled to be held in Ho Chi Minh City, from April 16 to 18.

According to Wolfram Diener, project manager of Viet Portex '97, the events will merge to bring together the buyers and sellers of essential port, shipbuilding and waterway construction equipment and services so that Vietnam can move ahead with its funded $300 billion Doi Moi investment strategy designated to upgrade and expand its coastal and inland ports and waterways. Projects for the extension and creation of harbors have already started or are in planning stages, including: the deep-sea harbor Thi Vai-Vung Tau, a $470 million project scheduled to be completed this year; Sao Mai Ben Dinh, a $637 million harbor located in Vung Tau; modernization and expansion worth $40 million in the Port of Saigon; development of harbors Cuo Lo, Xuan Hai, Quy Nonh, Nha Trang and Dam Mon; and the addition of 16 containerships, two crude oil tankers and four bulk carriers worth an estimated $513 million. "Our intention is to provide a dynamic marketplace where business can be conducted, shortcutting the long and tedious bureaucratic process of establishing trade outlets in Asia," said Mr. Diener.

The maritime industry sectors the show will target include companies involved in port construction, shipbuilding, repair equipment, port facilities administration, container and freight handling equipment, waterway construction, dredging, engines and propulsion systems, pumps and compressors, dock equipment, auxiliary machinery, navigation systems, electronics, oil drilling and offshore technology. A conference program will be held in conjunction with the three-day trade exhibition, and a seminar of note will feature international and Vietnamese officials reporting on all facets of the Vietnamese port expansion program. Hamburg Messe and Amsterdam RAI expect an increased exhibition volume in Vietnam as a result of their collaboration and plan to extend maritime trade fairs to Asian countries.
