KUALA LUMPUR (VNS) — Viet Nam has displayed its potential products at the international food and beverage fair in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, from June 19 to 21, with a hope of boosting exports of products to the country and other global markets.
At the event, which has drawn over 300 businesses from nearly 30 countries and territories, the Vietnamese Embassy to Malaysia is also showcasing publications and documents on Viet Nam's investment and business environment, which has grown rapidly in recent times.
Throughout the fair, Vietnamese products are expected to be welcomed and introduced to visitors, allowing Viet Nam to promote its image and products to the world. This will contribute in boosting the country's exports of food and beverages, said the embassy's Trade Counsellor Nguyen Son Ha.
On the first day, Vietnamese products, including coffee, tea, canned fruits and food, drew numerous businesses and visitors to learn and exchange information. Malaysia is Viet Nam's third largest trade partners in ASEAN. Since 2010, the two countries have seen a strong growth of over 20 per cent in bilateral trade. In 2013, two-way trade reached US$9.1 billion, a year-on-year rise of 15.25 per cent. Of this figure, Viet Nam's export was valued at over $4.9 billion.. — VNS
