ProPak Vietnam 2010, the exhibition on processing and packaging, draws 172 companies as exhibitors from 172 countries and territories. Up to 88% of the exhibitors are from foreign countries and territories such as Australia, Belgium, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, the UK and the US.

The two events are co-organized by Thailand’s Bangkok Exhibition Services Ltd., German company Messe Düsseldorf Asia, and VietCham Expo – the exhibition services company of the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

Messe Düsseldorf Asia managing director Gernot Ringling, speaking as a co-organizer of the plastics and rubber exhibition, said, “Among the ASEAN countries, Vietnam will continue to rank highly as an investment destination. Companies in the manufacturing sector, particularly in plastics and rubber processing, are working actively to upgrade their technology capabilities to compete better on the global stage.”

“This trend makes Plastics and Rubber Vietnam an event more important business to business event in Vietnam and on the international calendar.”

The agenda includes a workshop on packaging and processing for food safety, organized by the Vietnam Association of Food Science and Technology on Mar. 19.
Other highlights are a seminar on “Lean Sigma Six on the Packaging Industry” organized by Lean 6 Sigma Network, and a conference on industrial workspace cooling organized by Waterline Vietnam Company.

VietCham Expo director Bui Thi Thuc Anh said ProPak and Plastics & Rubber are Vietnam’s largest exhibitions in the industries, held every two years.

Seven Italian companies are attending the three-day exhibitions, which display the industries’ latest solutions and technologies. The Italian firms are Asep Systems, Omag, Pavan, Priamo, Seital S.r.L, Tecmon, and Zanotti.

In a message to the two exhibitions, Vietnamese Vice Minister of Industry and Trade Nguyen Thanh Bien wrote, “We believe that with rapidly increasing demands on the applications of plastics, rubber and packaging products in automotive, electronics, food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, sub-contracting and other packaging industries in Vietnam, these exhibitions are a great opportunity for companies to promote, look for partners, exchange experience and to modernize their manufacturing systems.”

QĐND – Monday, March 08, 2010, 21:7 (GMT+7)

The Vietnam Rubber Group will accelerate planting rubber trees in Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar and South Africa in the near future.

Currently, the group is managing 160,000ha of rubber with an output of nearly 300,000 tonnes per year. The group aims to exploit around 520,000ha of rubber trees in 2020.

By 2020, Vietnam aims to export around 1 million tonnes of rubber, and become of one of the world’s leading rubber exporters.

Last year, the group earned nearly US$1 billion from exports and US$200 million from profits.

Gia Lai targets 125,000 ha of rubber trees by 2015

QĐND – Thursday, October 22, 2009, 21:2 (GMT+7)

The Central Highland province of Gia Lai has zoned off between 120,000-125,000 ha for rubber growing by 2015 and the area is expected to increase to 130,000-135,000 ha by 2020. 

The province now has 76,700 ha of rubber trees and the remaining will be developed from poor natural forests and bare forest land. Most of the new plantations will be in south-western districts such as Duc Co, Chuprong, La Grai, Chu Se and Chupah. 

The expansion of rubber growing areas is expected to help improve the local people’s living conditions as the tree yields profit two times higher than cashew or short-term industrial crops. 

The number of workers involving in rubber production now accounts for 11.2 percent of the province’s total 390,000 agro-forestry labourers. 

In the future, if the province’s scheme is achieved, the rubber sector will create jobs for around 70,000 labourers.

Rubber exports near 400,000 tonnes

HA NOI — Viet Nam exported 383,000 tonnes of rubber during the first eight months of this year, a year-on-year decrease of 10 per cent, according to the General Statistics Office.

However, the export turnover reached more than US$1 billion, a year-on-year rise of 30 per cent due to the 42 per cent increase in the price of exported rubber.

The Ministry of Industry and Trade predicted that the rubber industry would export 780,000 tonnes of rubber this year, equivalent to about $1.45 billion, up 4 per cent in output and 2.3 per cent in value.

Many experts in this field, however, said that 2008’s rubber export turnover could reach $1.7 billion, up 21.6 per cent over last year thanks to favourable price conditions.

During the first week of August, Viet Nam’s export price of rubber increased by $181 per tonne compared to the figure in early July, reaching an average price of $3,012 per tonne.

According to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development’s report, approximately 80 per cent of domestic rubber has been exported to 40 countries and territories worldwide, including China, South Korea, Russia, Taiwan, the US, Japan and Germany.

The Ministry of Industry and Trade has also raised targets for rubber exports and plans to expand the market well beyond China, Viet Nam’s largest buyer of unprocessed rubber products

Viet Nam ranks fourth in the world in rubber exports, after Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia, but the ministry believes the country can increase the quantity and quality of rubber exports.

The International Rubber Study Group predicted that supply and demand would balance on the international rubber market in 2008, with consumption at 9.84 million tonnes and supply at 9.85 million tonnes.

The fluctuation in price has been largely attributed to the fact that world-leading rubber producers such as Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia have suffered natural calamities. As a result, their outputs have dropped dramatically, while the demand for natural rubber in large markets such as China, the US, Japan, and some European countries has been quite stable.

The Ministry of Industry and Trade said that the slow development of the economy worldwide would markedly affect demand for tyres, causing the price of natural rubber to drop. Most of the world’s rubber is used in tyres.

However, natural rubber prices are predicted to decrease only modestly as rubber storage in some countries with large consumption has dipped sharply due to preciously high prices. The drop in price would likely promote purchases. —

Indonesia to expand rubber plantation

Jakarta (VNA) – The Indonesian government has adopted a policy to develop the country’s national rubber industry through revitalisation of plantations to benefit from the current favourable international price of rubber.

The main target of the programme was to expand the rubber-growing area from 60,000 to 85,000 hectares, and by the end of 2010 the country could have 300,000 hectares of rubber plantations, according to Indonesia news agency (Antara).

Indonesia’s natural rubber exports in 2007 reached a total value of 4.6 billion USD, accounting for 40 percent of the overall amount the country earned from export of farm produce, Antara said. –
