The third session was held in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. As Taiwan's important fastener business partner and the seventh largest buyer at last year's Taiwan International Fastener Show, Vietnam has enjoyed satisfying growths in its economy and infrastructures. Around 30 representatives from well-known companies namely, An Hung JSC, Vinavit Corp, VitPham, and Lidovit, which are machine equipment traders and fastener importers, attended the session. Among the session participants, Lidovit, also a robust business partner with Taiwan's fastener makers, gave high recognition to Taiwan's fastener products, saying they will attend the show in Taiwan next year. Other Vietnam companies like Phan Anh Steel Structure and Trung Viet, which are building material provider and machine equipment trader, were also interested in joining the show to find partners.
