The South Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA) in Ha Noi plans to organise an online meeting to connect Vietnamese businesses and South Korean companies from Nonsan City, South Chungcheong Province next month.

The event is expected to feature representatives of seven South Korean businesses and will last from September 13 to 17.

It aims to promote bilateral trade between Vietnamese buyers and South Korean suppliers from Nonsan, facilitating trade between the two sides.

Nonsan City, two hours drive from Seoul city by car, is dubbed as a "Health City" because its land is useful for cultivating crops with a high nutrient content that is good for a person's health such as rice, ginseng, strawberries and watermelons. The city also has many industrial parks specialising in food and beverage processing, metal fabrication, electronic components, mechanical engineering and industrial equipment.

In the first six months of this year, KOTRA helped connected Vietnamese businesses with more than 18 South Korean business delegations, the equivalent of 300 enterprises via online exchange events. Among them, nearly 100 new Korean exporters were connected for the first time.

The number of online transactions have been increasing month by month despite travel restrictions between the two countries due to the COVID-19 pandemic, KOTRA said. — VNS
