The post-COVID 19 era is now dawning upon the world. “Trade Shows” will be much needed to kick-start the post-pandemic economy and play a vital role in boosting trade and innovations during the economic recovery. The 14th Vietnam International Woodworking Industry Fair (VietnamWood), a representative woodworking and wood processing machinery industry exhibition, will be held from October 20 to 23, 2021 at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center (SECC) in Ho Chi Minh City. VietnamWood is jointly organized by the Ministry of Industry & Trade - Vinexad National Trade Fair & Advertising J.S.C (VINEXAD) and Yorkers Trade & Marketing Service Co., Ltd. (YORKERS) and co-organized by the Handicraft and Wood Industry Association of Ho Chi Minh City (HAWA). It is the only exhibition endorsed by the European Federation of Woodworking Machinery Manufacturers (EUMABOIS) from the past 2 decades in Vietnam.

Vietnam Wood Industry regains growth momentum to enhance global market competitiveness
According to recent data, the total export value of timber, wooden products and forest products in 2020 estimated by VIFORES would reach $12.5 billion, showing a 10% growth compared to the previous year. The extraordinary result was partially credited to Vietnam's effective control of pandemic while countries like the US, the EU, and SEA countries had to temporarily suspended production from the pandemic lockdowns. With the implementation of two main free trade agreements–the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) and the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), Vietnam's wood processing and furniture manufacturing industry takes advantage of CPTPP, EVFTA for global market expansion. The EVFTA is hoped to contribute sustainable growth of Vietnam’s wood export and expect to open up new sales channels and raise product value.
To pinpoint these prospects, VietnamWood as the leading regional biennial trade fair for woodworking industry held in Ho Chi Minh City is placing collaboration at the forefront of the fair’s evolving approach to sustainable local woodworking industry development. VietnamWood 2021 will be held from 20 to 23 October at Saigon Exhibition & Convention Center (SECC).
