The 2017 Zhejiang export fair will be held in Ha Noi from August 3 to 5, showcasing the best products from the Chinese province.

The sixth Zhejiang export fair, organised at the Ha Noi International Exhibition Centre on Tran Hung Dao Street, will feature 150 booths of nearly 100 well-known businesses, Trinh Xuan Tuan, deputy general director of event organiser Viet Nam National Trade Fair & Advertising Company (Vinexad), said during a meeting held on Tuesday.

Products on display will include machinery, electronic equipment, construction material and interior decoration furniture, as well as textiles and garment material and consumer products.

With the slogan "Zhejiang Made-All Need" the Zhejiang export fair has been held in many countries, such as Japan, Dubai, Czech Republic, Iran and Malaysia. Viet Nam is a gateway for Zhejiang’s import and export transactions and investment in Southeast Asia in particular and Asia in general.

The fair will also be an opportunity for businesses to seek partnerships and serve as a bridge to further promote economic and trade relations between Zhejiang Province and Viet Nam. Zhejiang is a coastal province located in southeast China with ideal natural conditions. It has posted rapid economic growth in recent years and boasts economic relations with over 230 countries and territories around the world.

Trade turnover of Zhejiang and Viet Nam reached US$6.7 billion, an increase of 12 per cent over 2015.

By the end of 2016, 186 Zhejiang enterprises were investing in Viet Nam with total investment of $1.68 billion. Meanwhile, Viet Nam set up 26 firms in Zhejiang with total investment of $20 million. — VNS
