HCM CITY (VNS) — The four-day Lifestyle Viet Nam trade fair opens today at HCM City's Tan Binh Exhibition and Convention Centre.
Organised by the Viet Nam Handicraft Exporters Association (Vietcraft), it will have more than 800 stalls put up by local and foreign companies to display fine arts and handicrafts products, home decoration items, wooden furniture, household utensils, embroidery works, jewellery, fashion, footwear, accessories, and others.
Held to help local businesses find international partners to enlarge their exports, this year's exhibition has attracted 2,000 international buyers from 30 countries, including 300 each from Japan and Europe, 180 from the US, and dozens more from Australia, Canada, Chile, and Mexico.
It will have exclusive display areas for sustainably-made Vietnamese products and the latest products from France and Sweden.
Vietcraft said it hoped to develop LifeStyle Viet Nam into one of the largest home decor and gift fairs in Southeast Asia, in the process also popularising Viet Nam's products abroad. — VNS
