Therefore, Vietnam has proposed many major policies to promote the development of supporting industries, such as Decree No.111/2015/ND-CP on the development of supporting industries, including 6 targeted sectors: mechanical fabrication, automobile manufacturing and assembling, electronics, textile, and garment, footwear and leather, and hi-tech industry. In 2017, the Government issued Decision No.68 on the Supporting Industry Development Program for the period 2016-2025, focusing on 3 main industries: Spare parts and accessories, textile footwear, and hi-tech industry. In order to create a driving force for business development and capture greater domestic value addition, the Government also approved Resolution No.115/NQ-CP in August 2020 on promoting the development of Vietnamese supporting industries.

With the orientation “Connect to Develop”, VIMEXPO 2020 was the first Vietnam international exhibition on supporting industry and manufacturing, organized to concretize the Government’s Resolution No.115, proposing feasible solutions to promote the development of supporting industries in Vietnam. Because of such considerable significance, despite the fact that the COVID-19 pandemic has severely affected production activities, consumer market, and supply chain of raw materials for the manufacturing industry, VIMEXPO 2020 still received great participation and support from state management agencies, governmental and non-governmental organizations, professional associations, domestic and international trade promotion organizations and leading enterprises operating in supporting industry.
