HCM CITY — Delegates from Việt Nam will attend the Taipei International 5-in-1 Food Show, the largest trade promotion expo for the Taiwanese food industry, in Taipei from June 19-22.
The news was announced by the Việt Nam Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s branch in HCM City and the Taiwan External Trade Development Council in HCM City (TAITRA) on Tuesday.
The event will feature 5,000 stalls displaying food and food processing machinery, packaging equipment, restaurant-hotel-services and Halal products while promoting co-operation between foreign importers, businesses, partners and Taiwanese suppliers.
As many as 34 stalls by exhibitors from the US, Japan and the Republic of Korea are expected to bring exciting culinary experiences to visitors.
General Secretary of the HCM City Food and Foodstuff Association Trần Nhật Quang said the presence of leading Vietnamese brands at one of the top exhibitions in Asia will make it easier for local firms to introduce their products and trademarks, expand their markets and improve international competitiveness.
Chief representative of TAITRA in HCM City Keven Cheng said a number of Taiwanese firms want to expand their business operations in Việt Nam in the next three years, focusing on green and eco-friendly technology and medical equipment.
He said they are also interested in smart city development, high-tech agriculture, e-commerce and tourism.
With two-way trade increasing over recent years, both Việt Nam and Taiwan (China) ranks in the other’s top 10 trade partners.
Việt Nam exports mobile phones and spare parts, apparel and aquatic products to Taiwan while importing machinery, equipment and accessories. — VNS
