Four Cửu Long (Mekong) Delta provinces – An Giang, Bến Tre, Cần Thơ and Đồng Tháp, collectively known as ABCD Mekong -- will introduce their specialities like coconut masks, dried lotus seeds, and green skin pomelos.
The association will also organise an international conference on “Promoting Trade between Việt Nam and Thailand: Where are the Market Opportunities for Businesspeople of the Two Countries in the Current ASEAN Context?” and a meeting between Vietnamese firms and Thai and international distributors and importers.
