An international shipbuilding exhibition was opened in Hanoi on February 26, attracting leading global shipbuilders from Japan, the Republic of Korea, China, the Netherlands, Norway and Singapore.

The International Exhibition on Shipbuilding, Marine Technology & Transportation (Vietship), the seventh of its kind, has showcased the latest products and technology in the shipbuilding industry on more than 200 stands, with half of them coming from foreign brands.

Vietnamese Minister of Transport Dinh La Thang said at the opening ceremony the exhibition creates an international playground and expands direct information channels for maritime and shipbuilding market development, contributing to realizing the country’s sea-borne economic strategy.

Thang said the biannual event gives participants the chance to seek new investment opportunities, particularly in Vietnam.

The exhibition, which runs until February 28, includes a seminar to chart the course for Vietnam’s shipbuilding industry in the post-economic crisis period.
