HCM CITY — The 2017 Consumption Promotion Fair opened at the Phú Thọ Indoor Stadium in HCM City’s District 11 on Thursday.
Three hundred companies in various sectors like consumer goods, food and beverages, garments, footwear, handicrafts, furniture, cosmetics, and electronics have put up 520 booths.
To run until January 2, the fair offers attractive promotions such as discounts of up to 49 per cent to attract New Year shoppers.
Besides, organisers of the fair have co-ordinated with the HCM City Market Management Agency to display both fake and genuine products at the same booth to help consumers distinguish between them.
Speaking at the opening ceremony, Nguyễn Phương Đông, deputy director of the city Department of Industry and Trade, said the fair was a good opportunity for businesses to promote their products and brands to consumers and look for businesses partners.
Organised by the HCM City Centre of Supporting Industries Development and directed by the city Department of Industry and Trade, the fair will also wrap up the Promotion Month that began in September, 2017 aimed at stimulating consumption and building links between producers and consumers. — VNS
