Co-hosted by the Thai Ministry of Commerce, the Thai Trade Centre in Ho Chi Minh City and the Vietnam National Trade Fair & Advertising Company, the event is expected to draw about 60,000 visitors.
On display will be apparel, automobile and motorbike spare parts, beauty and health care products, food and beverages, household appliances, and services.
Director of the Thai Trade Centre in Ho Chi Minh City Suparporn Sookmark said apart from promoting Thailand’s leading products and services, the event will provide a platform for Vietnamese and Thai firms to expand their business networking and develop strategic partnership.
During the first two days of the event, business-to-business meetings will be a focus while display of Thai products will be open for free in the remaining days.
Sookmark said Thailand will continue partnering with Vietnam for the two countries’ common progress and prosperity.
Over the past years, a number of Thai businesses have invested in Vietnam, given its entry to free trade agreements, government incentives and a promising market.
The event reflects the Thai government’s commitment to fostering bilateral ties and raising two-way trade to 20 billion USD by 2020.
