More than 220 businesses from Japan, Italy, South Africa, China, Indonesia, South Korea, Bulgaria, Thailand, Laos and Viet Nam will promote trade and business links at the East-West Economic Corridor (EWEC) Fairs in the central city on November 18-23.

It’s also the first time that businesses from Italy and Bulgaria will participate in the annual fairs.

Da Nang, which is situated in the central region of Viet Nam and at the end of the EWEC – linking Myanmar, Thailand, Laos and Viet Nam, plays an important role as a main logistics centre in ASEAN and EWEC.

The city is a key logistics port for Viet Nam’s central provinces and the Central Highlands, as well as the EWEC.

Da Nang aims to become an international-standard logistics centre for Viet Nam, ASEAN and the Asia Pacific region by 2030. VNS
