HÀ NỘI — Chairman of the Hà Nội People’s Committee Nguyễn Đức Chung approved a plan on the organisation of the Việt Nam-Hà Nội Goods Week 2018 at Aeon stores in Japan.
From June 4-13, the Hà Nội Promotion Centre on Trade, Investment and Tourism, alongside relevant agencies and 25 firms will introduce Vietnamese handicraft and fine art articles, agricultural products, food and Hà Nội’s tourist attractions at Aeon Lake Town in Saitama prefecture and 40 other Aeon stores across Japan.
They will work to bolster trade connections and seek measures to bring Vietnamese agricultural products into Japanese distributing channels.
Local firms will have opportunity to learn about the tastes of Japanese consumers to aid their sales.
The “Việt Nam-Hà Nội Goods Week” is an annual event which combines cultural exchange and import-export promotion between the two nations.
Although Japan is the fifth largest importer of Việt Nam’s agricultural products, only three kinds of Vietnamese fresh fruits, namely banana, mango and dragon fruit, are sold in the country.
Aeon supermarkets in Japan have put several Vietnamese agricultural products on their shelves, including some types of fruit and tra fish. — VNS
