HÀ NỘI — A business-to-business (B2B) trade event was organised last week to connect companies from Gwangju – the sixth-largest metropolis of the Republic of Korea (RoK) – and Vietnamese importers.
During the five-day event held by the Korea Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA Hanoi), Gwangju businesses introduced their products of strength, including cosmetics, food and medical supplies.
Lee Dahye from Unique Medicare Co Ltd said such event offers a good chance for Korean firms, especially those that have never exported to foreign countries, to explore information about foreign partners.
KOTRA Hanoi has been employing online trade promotion events thoroughly to strengthen trade connection between the RoK and Việt Nam.
Head of KOTRA Hanoi’s office Trần Thị Hải Yến said as of mid-September, KOTRA had carried out 58 online events connecting 850 RoK businesses with nearly 900 Vietnamese importers.
The agency will continue to organise more events of this kind by the end of this year, aiming to connect 1,300 Korean enterprises and over 1,200 Vietnamese partners, helping lift the two-way trade between Việt Nam and the RoK to US$100 billion in the year. — VNS
