In addition to 52 Vietnamese businesses, the event will draw the participation of 78 leading foreign companies in the shipbuilding industry, including companies from Germany, the Netherlands, Turkey, France, Poland, Denmark, Japan, Norway, and China, among others.

The businesses will showcase their latest products and technology in shipbuilding and ship repair; equipment and materials for shipyards; offshore facilities, marine structures and maritime transport services.

Other services such as design, registration, insurance, finance, consulting, training, and logistics in the industry will also be introduced during the event.

According to SBIC Deputy General Director Ngo Tung Lam, Vietnam has important maritime geographic locations with many maritime routes passing through.

As it possesses huge potential in the shipbuilding market, the co-operation in shipbuilding and shipbuilding technology has significant meaning.

Over its seven editions, the biennial VietShip has been established as an important venue for the maritime community in Vietnam and the world at large. It has also consolidated its significant role in boosting co-operation, attracting investment, exchanging science and technology, and creating opportunities for trade promotion in the industry.
