Two fairs showcasing seafood and handicrafts will be held in the capital in October and November, a representative of the Trade Promotion Centre for Agriculture under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development told a press conference last week.

Following the success of a Vietnamese tra fish and aquatic products exhibition in the city in 2017, the seafood fair will take place from October 6-10, Dao Van Ho, director of the Trade Promotion Centre for Agriculture, said.

Ho described the event as a good opportunity to maintain the sustainable production and consumption of Vietnamese products, promote domestic trade and consumption, and attract investment in aquaculture.

Apart from fresh seafood such as tra fish, shrimp, cuttlefish and octopus, the fair will also showcase equipment and materials used for aquaculture, and feed for aquatic products and support services, he said.

A craft village fair and an international seminar titled “One Commune – One Product” (OCOP), will be organised in the city from November 17-21.The fair is expected to introduce outstanding craft village models nationwide, promote the OCOP programme, and expand handicraft markets. — VNS
