A display area for the products of the provinces along the Viet Nam - Laos border was opened on Thursday in Dong Hoi City, Quang Binh Province by Viet Nam’s Ministry of Industry and Trade and the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Laos.

There are 22 booths from 40 enterprises of Viet Nam and Laos, including 11 booths of Lao enterprises with wooden products, home appliances, electronics, rubber products, rice and sugar.

Meanwhile, the 11 Vietnamese booths exhibit cassava starch, pepper, curcumin powder, sweet potato, peanut oil, citronella oil, coffee, medicinal herbs, clean vegetables and Phuc Trach pomelo.

The display is part of the 11th Viet Nam - Laos border trade and development co-operation meeting, held in Quang Binh from September 26-27.

At the opening ceremony of the display area, Tran Thanh Hai, deputy director of Import-Export Department under the Ministry of Industry and Trade, said displaying at this area would create opportunities to advertise products of the two countries’ enterprises and connect their business with partners.

Hai said local enterprises need to step up their trade promotion activities and introduce their products in Laos. With support from the State and the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the enterprises should strive to grasp trade policies and take opportunities for promoting their goods.

This event is expected to create opportunities for local enterprises in introducing their products to not only Laos and also to other countries in the region, said Nguyen Thi Kim Khuyen, director of Quang Tri Province-based My Khuyen Food Co Ltd, one of the local enterprises displaying products at the area. — VNS
