A seminar will be held on the sidelines of the expo on 3D printing technology for making tools, advanced recycling of plastic waste, and knowledge sessions on recycling plastics in Viet Nam. Investment opportunities in the industry are promising as the country has high-growth prospects, significant dependence on imported raw materials and processing machineries, and a high level of plastics exports. PricewaterhouseCoopers said that Viet Nam could become one the fastest-growing of the world’s emerging economies by 2025, with a potential growth rate of almost 10 per cent per annum. — VNS
