HCM CITY — Bến Tre Province’s Farmers’ Association is working with Nông thôn Ngày Nay newspaper and its departments to organise an agricultural fair in November.
The event, which will promote products from Bến Tre and nearby provinces, will take place at the Việt Nam - International Trade Exhibition and Conference Centre from November 8 to 14 in the province.
The “Hội Tam Nông and Bến Tre Craft Village Products” event aims to celebrate local farmers and rural life.
More than 250 stalls will be set up at the fair to promote agricultural goods, technologies, and local dishes of Bến Tre.
Customers, farmers, organisations and potential partners will be able to network and learn about the latest agricultural developments.
The event also aims to promote the province’s specialties, high-quality goods and outstanding firms, contributing to the ongoing campaign of encouraging Vietnamese to use Vietnamese goods.
Conferences, networking events, charity events and musical performances will also be held.
Bến Tre is hosting the event for the first time. Similar events in the past were held in other provinces such as Long An or Đồng Tháp. — VNS
