SHANGHAI — A Việt Nam trade promotion area opened at the Greenland Global Commodity Trading Hub in Shanghai, China on Tuesday.
Speaking at the inauguration on behalf of the organiser, chairman of the Board of Directors and General Director of Sunny World Investment and Development Corp Vincent Truong said the display aims to realise the agreement reached by Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc and Chinese Party General Secretary and President Xi Jinping at the 2018 China International Import Expo about increasing imports from Việt Nam to China.
Truong said besides promoting trade, the display area also serves as a venue to connect with Chinese investors and promote Việt Nam and its people to Chinese and international friends, helping boost co-operation between Việt Nam and various countries worldwide.
Vietnamese Consul General in Shanghai Ninh Thành Công committed all possible support to Vietnamese firms seeking prestigious partners in trade, investment and tourism, and contributing to the balanced and sustainable development of bilateral economic and trade ties.
The Việt Nam Trade Promotion Area is located on the second floor of the hub, covering an area of more than 300sq.m with four stalls showcasing Vietnamese fruit, processed foods, handicrafts and lacquer paintings.
Traditional Vietnamese áo dài (long dress) and conical palm-leaf hats were also on display.
On the inauguration day, hundreds of Chinese and foreign firms and partners visited the area to seek potential business opportunities. — VNS
