Two big events for Cambodia’s industrial sector will be held together next week.
The 8th Cambodia International Machinery Industry Fair will be held alongside the 8th Cambodia International Textile & Garment Industry Exhibition at the Diamond Island Convention & Exhibition Center on August 22-25.
The joint event has been described by organisers as the “most comprehensive exhibition in Cambodia for machinery”.
The last machinery fair in Cambodia was held in 2017.
A post on the official Facebook page of the Cambodia Chamber of Commerce said Cambodia’s strong economic growth and high demand for machinery in the manufacturing sector make the event timely. CCC is helping promote the event.
The event this year promises to be much bigger than the one held two years ago, which was attended by more than 8,000 participants and 175 exhibitors from 17 countries.
This time, more than 200 exhibitors from 15 countries are expected to showcase their products and services.
Exhibitors are expected to showcase machinery, tools, and materials used in the agriculture, transportation, IT, packaging, electrical systems, automotive parts, and robotics sectors, among others.
The displays in the garment fair, meanwhile, will include fabric and machinery used in the manufacture of footwear and clothing.
The official website for the garment exhibition said top garment companies from Cambodia, Vietnam, China, and Taiwan, among other countries, will attend the event.
Specifically, the website mentions Jack Sewing Machine Co Ltd, E-Show Technology Ltd, Hikari (Shanghai) Precise Machinery Science & Technology Co Ltd, Zhejiang Yalis Automation Equipment Technology Co Ltd, and Ningbo Supreme Electronic Machinery Inc., which are all Chinese firms.
