HÀ NỘI — The 2017 Vĩnh Long expo on industry and trade opened on Sunday and will last until May 5 in the southern province of Vĩnh Long, attracting 92 enterprises from inside and outside the province.
The exhibition has 211 booths, displaying consumer goods, interior decoration items, handicrafts and garments, as well as typical rural industrial products, agricultural products and specialties of provinces and cities inside and outside the Mekong Delta.
Director of Vĩnh Long Department of Industry and Trade Phạm Tú Phương said the fair played an important role in enhancing trade promotion, contributing to boosting the socio-economic development of the locality.
It also served as a platform for firms to meet and exchange experiences in technology transfer to improve product quality and design, as well as promote market development in the trend of integration, Phương said.
In addition, the fair was a place for enterprises, manufacturers and consumers to exchange information on goods and market demands, thereby enabling them to orient their business strategies to meet the needs and tastes of consumers, he said.
The fair also creates favourable conditions for consumers to access and use domestically-produced goods with food safety and reasonable prices, at the same time promoting the campaign "Vietnamese people use Vietnamese goods."
Further, it includes exhibitions showcasing the economic, cultural, social, security and defence achievements of Vĩnh Long and its potential and strengths to attract investment. — VNS
