Fair promotes emerging markets
HONG KONG (VNS)— Hundreds of home decor and fashion accessories made in Viet Nam and other emerging Asian markets will be showcased at an international business-to-business sourcing fair in Hong Kong that will open tomorrow.
Hinrich Foundation, a Hong Kong-based charitable organisation, in partnership with Global Sources, a business-to-business media company, is promoting more than 900 established small- and medium-sized exporters from Viet Nam and other emerging Asian economies beyond China.
Information about the enterprises is featured in 60 industry-specific sourcing reports on display at the Global Sources China Sourcing Fairs: Fashion Accessories Show, which ends on October 30.
Each report is a comprehensive sourcing guide for specific products, including home decor, gifts, furniture, kitchenware, Christmas ornaments, garments, footwear and fashion jewelery from Viet Nam and other emerging markets, including India, Cambodia, Indonesia and the Philippines.
The reports offer in-depth profiles of export manufacturers, market-industry overviews, product specifications, and supplier surveys on pricing and forecasts.
Products on display from the featured exporters include 150 new designs of kitchenware, basketware, hanging dcor, baby quilts, eco-friendly photo frames and bags, boxes, trays and vases, gifts and premiums, fashion jewelery, garments, handbags and shoes.
Dorota Jankowska-Tomkow, purchasing manager of LPP S.A, a Polish company of clothing design and distribution, said that sourcing reports bought by her company contained practical information like contact details as well as in-depth forecasts and analyses of relevant industries.
Dorota, who visited the show last year, said she made a sourcing trip to meet with suppliers in Ha Noi to seek an alternative supply chain in Asia.
Cao Minh Thuy Trang, head of the HCM City Handicraft & Wood Industry Association, said that many of the group's members had received practical export trade assistance from the Hinrich Foundation which had helped them participate in competitive global markets. — VNS
