KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, Oct. 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Widely recognised as Vietnam's No.1 Water & Wastewater industry Show -- the 6th edition of VIETWATER 2014 Expo & Forum will once again make its mark from 12-14 November, 2014 at the Saigon Exhibition & Convention Center (SECC) in, Ho Chi Minh City. It is expected to attract over 300 exhibitors from 32 countries as well as to welcome 9000 trade visitors from across the region.
Since 2000, Vietnam has been characterised by rapid urbanisation and industrialisation. Despite the high rate of urbanisation, 68% of the Vietnamese population still live in rural areas with only 32% residing in urban locations. In light of these changing development prospects, Vietnam has ambitious plans for its water sector in the future, which are outlined in the urban water and wastewater targets that the government aims to achieve by 2025. A significant portion of this target has already been approved by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) for the investment in Vietnam's new municipal water and wastewater infrastructure.
Therefore, VietWater 2014 is proud to provide an excellent and comprehensive business platform for the international water industry. Tremendous business opportunities are available to improve and speed up the development of the water systems. Hosted by the Vietnam Water Supply and Sewerage Association (VWSA) and fully supported by the Ministry of Construction and the Southeast Asian Water Utilities Network (SEAWUN), this event offers government and business organisations the opportunity to showcase a wide range of services, technologies and equipment for the Integrated Water & Wastewater Industry.
Visitors will be able to witness prominent companies exhibiting together under their represented pavilions which include Japan, Korea, Taiwan, China, France, Finland, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Israel, Norway, Sweden and Illinois (USA). There will also be Technical Seminars designed to help participants find solutions to their business concerns. Without a doubt, VietWater 2014 is the trade show that attracts the most influential market leaders and features a complete overview of what the water and wastewater industry is all about.
