The event was jointly held by the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Industry and Trade, the Ho Chi Minh City Export Processing and Industrial Zone Authority and the management board of the Saigon Hi-tech Park.

The event attracted 17 foreign firms operating in the fields of electronics, automobiles, lorry and mechanical engineering, alongside 80 domestic support industry manufacturers.

According to Deputy Director of the municipal Department of Industry and Trade Nguyen Phuong Dong, the event is expected to help industrial manufacturers and support industry suppliers to access domestic and foreign markets and gradually join in the global supply chain.

In addition, the department has worked closely with the agencies concerned to support personnel training, particularly managerial staff, while following the mechanisms and policies of the government and Ho Chi Minh City to guide enterprises on how to renovate manufacturing, enhance output and expand markets, as well as improve competitiveness and increase local contents in locally-made products.
