Mining Vietnam 2014: Australia introduces innovative technologies and solutions

Mining Vietnam 2014: Australia introduces innovative technologies and solutions - 

As many as fourteen leading Australian mining equipment and technology services (METS) companies are visiting Vietnam from 9-13 March to attend the 2nd Mining Vietnam Exhibition and Conference in Hanoi and explore business and collaboration opportunities.

These companies will be on hand to share their expertise and solutions in improving the productivity, efficiency, safety and competitiveness of mine operations.

“Since the establishment of diplomatic ties 41 years ago, Australia and Vietnam had built strong and positive linkages across a variety of key areas, such as education,foreign policy, defence cooperation, development cooperation, trade and investment. This event will strengthen bilateral engagement and create a platform for further productive collaboration in a priority sector”, said Australian Ambassador to Vietnam, Mr Hugh Borrowman.

According to a press release issued by the Australian Embassy in Hanoi on March 10, the two nations share a number of common interests, including energy development and supply security, and mining continues to be a powerful economic driver for both Australia and Vietnam. But the key for both Vietnam and Australia is to maximise long-term benefits and ensure the productive and sustainable future of their mining industries, their communities, businesses and economies.

Australia has established itself not only as a leading energy and commodities supplier but also as a provider of safe, efficient and innovative METS. Over the years, it has developed and perfected the technologies and expertise needed to cope with some of the world’s most remote and harshest mining conditions, as well as ensuring mine operations remain productive, possess high environmental standards and contribute to economic sustainable development.

So far, Australia has some 2,500 companies involved in the mining sector employing 386,000 workers, and approximately 60 per cent of the world’s mines use software that was developed in Australia. Many of Vietnam’s mining operations are already benefiting from Australian expertise, technology and equipment.

The first exhibition of this kind, Mining Vietnam 2012, attracted the participation of 126 domestic and foreign businesses. About 80 percent of these companies have confirmed their participation in Mining Vietnam 2014.
