BANGKOK – Up to 35 Vietnamese and Thai businesses operating in processing, garment-textile, household utensils and food are showcasing their products at an expo in Bangkok, Thailand.
The four-day event, which opened on Thursday, is jointly held by HCM City’s Department of Industry and Trade and Thailand’s BJC retail group.
It is one of the trade activities by HCM City to help Vietnamese businesses promote products and brands in Thailand, as well as seek potential international partners and expand markets.
Addressing the opening ceremony, Vietnamese Ambassador to Thailand Nguyễn Hải Bằng said the event created an opportunity for Vietnamese firms to promote their goods in Thailand.
It also enabled Thai customers to experience high-quality products from Việt Nam, he added.
He affirmed that the embassy is willing to connect businesses of the two countries in promoting trade and investment, and establishing partnerships.
This is the second time a promotion event for Vietnamese goods has been held in Bangkok this year. Earlier, the Vietnamese goods programme in Thailand took place at the Central World shopping complex on September 18-22 with the participation of nearly 50 Vietnamese companies. — VNS
