VOV.VN - The Vietnamese Goods 2021 exhibition kicked off in Ho Chi Minh City on December 20 to introduce an array of high-quality products and services to consumers, whilst simultaneously elevating the profile of domestically-produced brands.
Nguyen Phuoc Hung, vice president of HCM City Business Association (HUBA), said the event has been held via both direct and online platforms, featuring high-quality firms from the southern city in fields such as food, beverages, rubber, plastics, household appliances, mechanics, electricity, information technology, pharmaceuticals, and real estate.
The exhibition has also been an activity to support local businesses in strengthening linkages of production chains whilst seeking partners to conduct transactions.
In his opening speech, Bui Ta Hoang Vu, director of the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Industry and Trade, emphasized that despite challenges relating to COVID-19, businesses have redouble efforts to maintain production and supply chains, as well as ensuring people’s demand for food.
Most notably, the city’s import-export turnover witnessed impressive growth this year, while domestic manufacturing enterprises have been actively applying advanced technologies in production line to launch high-quality products which are capable of meeting the demand for domestic consumption and export.
During the opening ceremony, the HCM City Business Association, the Ho Chi Minh City Department of External Relations, and the Vietnam Entrepreneurs Association in Australia signed a co-operation agreement to promote Vietnamese goods in the Australian market.
There will be several business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-customer (B2C) schemes held during the event to provide an ideal venue for firms to meet and promote the consumption of products.
The exhibition, which has been organized by the HCM City Business Association, will run until the end of December 21.
