Thriving Trade Between Vietnam and Germany Replicated at Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City 2018
With Germany sitting at the top of the pile in Vietnamese automotive imports and support from the country’s Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology, a dedicated German country pavilion would debut at the upcoming edition of Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City. As Vietnam’s leading regional trade fair for the automotive service industry, the fair would take place from 25th–27th April, 2018. More than 8,500 trade buyers are expected to converge at the event with around 360 worldwide exhibitors and key industry players from all corners of the automotive service sector.
According to the latest information from the General Department of Vietnam Customs, Germany is currently Vietnam’s largest import market and its second largest European export market (after the Netherlands). With the total export turnover between the two countries recently reaching US$4.6 billion, the largest industries within this are related to machinery, equipment and spare-parts. More importantly, Germany is one of the major markets supplying complete automobiles and components to the region. In the first six months of 2017, the total volume of completed cars and related components stood at US$126.5 million.
In addition, 2016 saw the European Commission publish the details behind a free trade agreement between the EU and Vietnam, which was to come into play by the end of 2017. Under this agreement, cars, motorcycles and related parts exported from the EU would eventually become duty-free, in the hope of Vietnam becoming the new hotspot for Asia’s automotive manufacturing sector.
Keeping in line with the region’s strong connections to Germany, the dedicated pavilion at Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City is expected to house numerous prominent German companies and manufacturers who are looking to capitalise on this opportunity. Joining the German pavilion are various other international exhibitors; more than 360 companies would exhibit in an expected 9,200sq m of space. These come from China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Italy, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, the UAE, the UK, the US, Vietnam and many more.
The second edition of Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City is said to focus on the eight core product groups: Parts & Components, Electronics & Systems, Accessories & Customising, Repair & Maintenance, Dealer & Workshop Management, Car Wash, Care & Reconditioning, Alternative Drive Systems & Digital Solutions, and REIFEN, a new product group for 2018 dedicated to tyres. The upcoming fair is also extending its product portfolio to better reflect the local market, with the ‘Tyre Competence’ and ‘Motorcycle Competence’ labels allowing visitors to explore the unique needs of the Vietnamese automotive industry, by highlighting exhibitors from the well-established tyre and motorcycle sectors.
