HA NOI (Biz Hub) – The Made in Thailand Outlet offers a good chance for enterprises from Thailand and Viet Nam to expand their trade co-operation, said Trade Counsellor at the Thai Embassy in Viet Nam Ponpimon Petcharakul at the opening ceremony of the 2016 outlet in Ha Noi on May 26.

As a counselor in charge of trade, she vowed to help popularise Thai products in Viet Nam and made-in-Viet Nam goods in Thailand.

According to the organising board, this year's four-day event has attracted 120 Thai businesses showcasing their outstanding products at 150 booths.

The items include food, beverages, household commodities, garment and textiles, jewellery, electrical appliances, health and beauty products, and auto parts.

Statistics from the Vietnamese Ministry of Industry and Trade showed that bilateral trade doubled in the 2011-2015 period.

Thailand is one of the three largest partners of Viet Nam in ASEAN. Two-way trade reached US$1.6 billion in the first two months of 2016. — VNS
