HÀ NỘI — A fair promoting Vietnamese exports is scheduled to kick off in Hà Nội on Thursday, the city’s Department of Industry and Trade announced late last week.
According to Trần Thị Lan Phương, head of the department, in the first half of this year, the COVID-19 pandemic took a heavy toll on local businesses, particularly exporters.
The fair is being held to help companies promote their products and reduce inventories. It is also a chance for local customers to take a look at high-quality export goods.
Lasting until August 2, the fair is expected to attract more than 300 stalls from some 200 companies.
It will feature products ranging from farm produce, food, apparel, footwear, and household items to electronic devices, ceramics, and wooden products.
The department will invite distribution units such as shopping malls and retail outlets to the fair, to help boost sales, and will increase communications campaigns to attract visitors. — VNS
