Singapore, July 31, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - Myanmar's first dedicated manufacturing trade exhibition will be held at the Myanmar Convention Centre (MCC) in Yangon, from 2 - 4 October 2014.

Commenting on the show's key role in bridging the gap between international companies and the emerging market, Mr. William Lim, Project Director for Manufacturing Myanmar 2014 from the show's organiser, Singapore Exhibition Services says, "For majority of our exhibitors, Myanmar is unchartered territory. As the country develops their industries and continues their push to lure Foreign Direct Investments (FDIs) to grow their manufacturing sector, this presents opportunities for international manufacturing solution providers to introduce the technology needed to increase productivity and drive development. Manufacturing Myanmar therefore provides an ideal business platform for international firms to get a better understanding of the current and future manufacturing equipment needs of the Myanmar manufacturing market, as well as for local industry players to source for new technologies relevant to their business."

Three international group pavilions will be featured at the inaugural edition of Manufacturing Myanmar 2014. They include Singapore - presented by the Singapore Precision Engineering & Tooling Association (SPETA); Taiwan - presented by the Taiwan Machine Tool & Accessory Builders' Association (TMBA) and Thailand - presented by the Hardware & DIY Club.

Mr. Koh Seng Chee, Executive Director of SPETA, coordinators of the Singapore pavilion says, "Our members are very keen to explore opportunities within Myanmar and Manufacturing Myanmar 2014 presents a good chance to do so. The pavilion will feature a wide range of machines and equipment that can be applied across various manufacturing industries. We hope to establish some meaningful connections and valuable business contacts within Myanmar."

The manufacturing sector in Myanmar, consisting largely of labour-intensive production augurs well for companies such as Hong Chek - leading supplier for jewellery and industrial equipment. Their showcase includes:

- Finmark Fiber Laser - Its specifications along with high accuracy makes this laser engraver particularly suitable for all sorts of high precision applications. This affordable, yet easy to use compact unit is ideal for user-convenience and easy integration into the production processes.
