China is a large country performer in the foundry industry. It has accumulated rich industry experiences during the past several decades of high-speed developments. But at the same time, it is now facing an increasingly saturated domestic market and gradually losing the low-cost advantages. Thailand is a newly industrialized country, and in recent years, the rapid development of its automobile industry and the implementation of a series of measures to revitalize the economy, such as Industry 4.0 and the Eastern Economic Corridor Strategy, have greatly stimulated potential demand for the metal industry in Thailand. The comparative advantages in low labor cost and low land cost in Thailand are significant, and future market development is promising. Moreover, Thailand is an important country in the China-ASEAN Free Trade Area (CAFTA) and along the "Belt and Road". It has zero-tariff advantage and many interests in cooperation with Chinese companies.

At a time when a new round of industrial transformation accelerates the restructuring of the global manufacturing industry, the all-round opening up of the foundry industry has become a historical necessity. Under this background, the China Foundry Association has followed the "Belt and Road" initiative and upholds the commitments to servicing industry enterprises, and is going to build a comprehensive and exclusive metal industry platform that integrates exhibitions, exchanges and cooperation as well as trade negotiations, focusing on the cooperation hotspots and investment needs between Chinese and Thai foundry companies, with the aim to practically promote the dialogue and cooperation of both countries and realize mutual benefit and win-win. There are 6 major themes of the exhibition: Foundry & Metallurgy, Die-casting, Heat treatment & melting, Machine tools & Metalworking, Industrial Automation, Motion & Drives.
