In recent years, with more focus on the production quality and efficient use of metals and alloys for sustainable development, research and application activities in corrosion and related issues have made significant contributions to Vietnam’s industry, business, education, training, national defence and security.

In the continuation of its scientific tradition, the Vietnam Corrosion and Metal Protection Association (VICORRA) in coordination with the PetroVietnam University (PVU), with the consent of the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) and the Vietnam Union of Science and Technology Associations (VUSTA), will hold the 5th National Conference, themed “Corrosion and Metal Protection for Energy Development.”

This Conference is an important event for nationwide experts and institutions to exchange their knowledge, experiences and information about research and applications in the field of corrosion, metal protection and related issues, especially for the energy project. This is also an opportunity for our foreign colleagues involved in collaboration with Vietnamese counterparts to share the results of cooperation and to orientate future cooperation.

The Conference is going to be held in Ba Ria – Vung Tau Province, one of the most well-known national oil and gas extraction and refinery centres, an energy and heavy industry area combined with big marine ports and famous tourist destination of our country.

The Organizing Committee cordially invites all interested colleagues and institutions to participate in the Conference. Your attendance will be a great contribution to the success of the Conference.
