wire Southeast Asia and Tube Southeast Asia will return to the Bangkok Trade & Exhibition Centre (BITEC), Bangkok, Thailand from September 19 – 21, 2017. This opportune and strategic staging of the two specialist trade fairs comes amidst encouraging prospects expected for the wire, cable, tube and pipe industries, especially due to the thriving infrastructure and manufacturing sectors in Southeast Asia. Online exhibitor registration is open now at www.wire-southeastasia.com and www.tube-southeastasia.com.

According to the Asian Development Bank (ADB), the energy and transport sectors will account for 62.6% of the total ASEAN infrastructure investment needs by 2020. This is confirmed by Goldman Sachs’ projection about infrastructure spending in power and transport in four ASEAN countries (Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Philippines) which will amount to US$524 billion by 2020.

A major ASEAN infrastructure initiative is the ASEAN Power Grid (APG) with investment requirement of US$5.9 billion, as well as the Singapore-Kuala Lumpur high speed rail which will span 217 miles and is expected to start operations in 2026. On the manufacturing front, should ASEAN fully implement the ASEAN Economic Community’s integration strategy and captures a larger share of global manufacturing, the region could gain US$280–US$625 billion in annual GDP by 2030 as stated in a recent report by the McKinsey Global Institute.
