At the Hà Nội International Exhibition Centre, as many as 31 online booths are in place to connect Thai exporters to Vietnamese importers to promote trade between Thailand and Việt Nam.
There are also 60 on-site booths of Vietnamese importers and agents who import Thai products, displaying and selling a number of categories of quality products from Thailand, including food and beverages, household products, textile and garment, jewellery, health and beauty products, decorative items and souvenir, travel services and more.
Special activities include the Songkran Festival, Thailand Photoshoot, Thai Boxing, Thai food tasting and Thai dancing performance.
