The High Quality Vietnamese Product Business Association will lead a business delegation that will participate in the 2017 ASEAN-India Expo and Forum to be held in August in Bangkok.

Organised by the Thai Ministry of Commerce, the event is meant to strengthen the strategic partnership between ASEAN and India and enhance trade, investment and tourism connectivity between them.

The event will have nearly 160 booths.

The Vietnam Pavilion will promote the country’s image as well as specific cultural, culinary and tourism features, and introduce Vietnamese products with geographical indication status, national cuisine programmes, organic products, and porcelain.

The national pavilion will also showcase 44 producers who make products that qualify as “high-quality Vietnamese goods - integration standards”.

There will also be individual booths set up by 10 leading Vietnamese firms -- in sectors like dairy, cocoa, processed foods, and foods by Vinamilk, Vinamit, Co May, Bích Chi, and Vietnam Cacao and in others like ceramics, stationery, footwear, plastic, electric lights by Minh Long, Thien Long, Dien Quang, Qui Phuc, and Biti’s.

Four Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta provinces – An Giang, Ben Tre, Can Tho and Dong Thap, collectively known as ABCD Mekong -- will introduce their specialities like coconut masks, dried lotus seeds, and green skin pomelos.

The association will also organise an international conference on “Promoting Trade between Viet Nam and Thailand: Where are the Market Opportunities for Businesspeople of the Two Countries in the Current ASEAN Context?” and a meeting between Vietnamese firms and Thai and international distributors and importers.

The Thai Commerce Department will invite dozens of importers and distributors like Berli Jucker Public Co. Ltd, CP ALL Public Company Limited, Ek-Chai Distribution System Co, the Mall Group, and Foodland Supermarket to connect with Vietnamese businesses at the event.

The event will be held from August 2-5 at the Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre. — VNS
