The HCM City People’s Committee has approved a plan to organise a week of Vietnamese goods in Thailand in October.

The municipal Department of Industry and Trade would hold the event in Bangkok from October 23 to 27, featuring 300 stalls, online newspaper vietnamplus.vn reported.

The upcoming event will focus on promoting key products of the southern economic hub that have become popular in Thailand like processed food, handicrafts, household items, apparel and farm produce.

It will also include workshops to create a venue for businesses in the two countries to discuss Thailand’s import standards and Thai consumer tastes and demand for Vietnamese goods.

The department is working with provinces and cities to select products to be displayed. It is also collaborating with agencies and sectors to invite enterprises to take part in the event.

Thailand is the biggest trade partner of Viet Nam in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), with two-way trade reaching US$17.5 billion in 2018. — VNS
