HÀ NỘI — The Việt Nam-China International Tourism Fair 2017 kicked off on Friday in Móng Cái City of the northern province of Quảng Ninh.
The fair has attracted more than 450 booths, including over 300 firms from Việt Nam, 122 from China and 16 enterprises from Thailand.
It will showcase major products such as fruit, agro-forestry-fishery products, machinery and electronic devices, as well as handicrafts and wood products.
The fair is divided into five sections, which introduce the socio-economic achievements of Móng Cái City, other localities and businesses of Việt Nam and China. Besides displaying tourism products and services of the two countries, a new activity for this year’s event is displaying speciality fruit and agricultural and seafood products of both Việt Nam and China. Many booths will also introduce commodities made under the “One village, one product” programme in Việt Nam.
Along with an investment, trade and tourism promotion conference, a forum will be held to promote the trade of fruit and agricultural products through Việt Nam’s Móng Cái City and China’s Dongxing border gates, thus connecting Vietnamese and Chinese companies. Other activities will include a street festival in Trần Phú ward and a workshop promoting a free trade area in Việt Nam - China border regions.
The Việt Nam-China International Tourism Fair, part of Việt Nam’s national trade promotion programme, is the 12th of its kind held annually on a rotational basis between Quảng Ninh’s Móng Cái City and Dongxing City of China’s Guangxi Province.
This year’s event is being held at the square of the Communications-Culture Centre in Hòa Lạc Ward of Móng Cái City and will go on until December 7. — VNS
