ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGIES TRADE MISSION
March 29-April 6, 2004
Join the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Environmental Technologies Trade Mission to Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam, March 29-April 6, 2004, and meet prospective distributors, agents, and strategic business partners. This event is open to U.S. firms in all environmental sectors, with special focus on air pollution, water/wastewater treatment, waste management/recycling, and contaminated soil remediation.
Malaysia was among the first Southeast Asian nations to incorporate environmental concerns in its long-range economic plans. Don’t miss this opportunity to come and introduce your products and services to Malaysia’s $800 million environmental market, which is growing by 10 percent annually. The United States is Malaysia’s leading foreign supplier of environmental equipment, especially in the water and wastewater treatment sectors.
Thailand’s $140-200 million environmental market is expected to increase to meet stepped-up regulatory enforcement. With $1.5 billion needed to attain universal safe water and sanitation by 2020, environmental infrastructure demands will claim a significant share of the nation’s budget for years to come. Thai and international manufacturers attempting to meet environmental and production standards remain important end-users of U.S. equipment and services.
Vietnam’s $450 million market for pollution control equipment and services will continue to grow as the country faces environmental challenges stemming from industrialization and an urban population boom. Lacking local production and technology to meet market demand and the requirements of its many Overseas Development Assistance projects, Vietnam must import nearly all key environmental equipment. U.S. products and technologies are highly regarded.
Best Sales Prospects include, but are not limited to, the following: industrial wastewater treatment and management plants; recycling facilities; biological waste facilities; solid waste and medical waste treatment disposal facilities; and noise pollution.
Business Meetings--and More
At each stop, you will receive your own schedule of prescreened appointments, in-depth market briefings, hospitality, interpreters, and logistical support.
