The 19th SGPFair features businesses from more than 10 countries and territories, including Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Republic of Korea, Cambodia, Vietnam, China and the Chinese territories of Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.
Among the six Vietnamese businesses at the event, A&EM with paintings, Doma Vina with paper toys and Tu Duy with horn souvenirs and jewellery all took part in the fair last year.
The newcomers are Sweety Lovey with kids’ clothes, BOARC with handicrafts made from bamboo toothpicks and YLP which helps Vietnamese businesses attend international exhibitions and trade promotion events.
Notably, handicrafts made from bamboo toothpicks have attracted much interest from visitors as they recreate famous destinations around the world like the White House of the US, the Taj Mahal of India and the Gardens by the Bay of Singapore.
The SGPFair is believed to be a good occasion for Vietnamese firms to introduce their products and seek partners to expand export markets. They also have a chance to learn the the latest gift trends.
The SGPFair 2018 will run through July 20 at Marina Bay Sands.
