Vietnamese who love Thailand culture took part in an event called “Colour of Thai In Viet Nam” organised for the first time by MM Mega Market Viet Nam late last week.

Recreating the magical atmosphere of the Loy Krathong lantern festival, one of the most special festivals of the land of the Golden Temple, the event took place at MM Mega Market An Phu in HCM City and MM Mega Market Thang Long in Ha Noi.

Tran Kim Nga, corporate development director of MM Mega Market Vietnam, said: “In ASEAN, Thailand currently is an important trading partner of Viet Nam. Viet Nam is Thailand's largest export partner with two-way trade turnover in 2019 reaching US$16.9 billion.”

“As MM Mega Market is one of the investments of the TCC group in Viet Nam and one of the leading modern distribution channels nationwide, we are determined to become a bridge, connecting the two countries in both the cultural and financial sectors,” she said.

On the occasion of "Colors of Thai in Vietnam" event, MM Mega Market Vietnam has organized a promotion until November 11 at 20 MM centres across the country. 

During this programme, hundreds of Thai products in the categories of food and beverages, household appliances and home appliances are being discounted up to 45 per cent.

According to MM Mega Market, the success of the event "Colors of Thai in Vietnam" is a start for many commercial connection activities between the two countries that MM will organise in the future.

Consul General of the Kingdom of Thailand Apirat Sugondhabhirom said: “MM Mega Market Vietnam has contributed to promoting the relationship between Thailand and Viet Nam, not only in the field of trade and investment, but also in terms of culture and relationships. I hope that, in the coming time, Thailand and Viet Nam will be able to achieve the target of increasing the two countries' trade turnover to $20 billion as set by the prime ministers of the two countries.”

Also at the opening ceremony, Apirat Sugondhabhirom praised the community responsibility of Thai businesses in Viet Nam. For instance, many Thai businesses, including MM Mega Market, quickly acted to support the people in the central region who were affected by floods with food and necessities. — VNS
