As many as 126 stands feature favourite Thai products such as food and foodstuffs, beverages, fruits, household utensils, garments, jewellery, electronic appliances, cosmetics, bike and automobile equipment, decorations, and souvenirs.
Busaba Butrat, trade counsellor of the Thai embassy in Hanoi, said the fair not only promotes Thailand’s high-quality products and services to Vietnamese consumers, but also offers a chance for Thai businesses to explore Vietnam’s potential retail market.
She said over the past five years the fair has gained a market niche in Vietnam, winning local consumer trust. As a result, sales from Thai products in Vietnam have increased considerably.
Vietnam and Thailand plan to raise two-way trade by 20 percent by 2015, she said.
The fair lasts through to May 19.
