Twenty new innovations from Sweden are on display at the “Innovative Sweden” exhibition that kicked off in Ho Chi Minh City on November 10.
The exhibit, which is part of the namesake program, runs until the end of this month to celebrate 45 years of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and Sweden, the Swedish Embassy announced at a press conference on November 5.
Some of the displayed innovations are available on the international market but have not made their way to Vietnam, Swedish Ambassador Camilla Mellander told Tuoi Tre News at the opening ceremony at Hoa Sen University in District 1.
The organizers are holding the event in the hope of finding partners in Vietnam to bring the products to the local market, she added. The exhibit is showcasing Swedish high-tech innovations from four categories, including information and communication technology, life science, clean technology, and gaming.
The products include ocular-controlled computers, wearable cameras, interactive glasses, multi-sensing touch technology, solar water-purification systems, boosting hand strength technology, and environmentally-friendly mobile phone chargers.
