Hanoi (VNA) — The biggest annual Vietnamese goods fair in Myanmar will take place in Yangon from December 19 to 22.
Held by the Viet Nam Trade Promotion Agency (VIETTRADE) since 2009, the event will feature about 100 stalls this year. On display will be processed foods, consumer products, equipment and machines, electric and electronic devices, medical and chemical products.
Vietnamese enterprises taking part in the fair will have their space and advertising fees covered by the organiser.
According to VIETTRADE, the event aims to promote Vietnamese businesses and trademarks to push exports of local products and expand the country’s distribution network in Myanmar.
Trade between Viet Nam and Myanmar reached 860 million USD in 2018, making Viet Nam the 9th largest trade partner of Myanmar. Viet Nam has also become the 7th largest foreign investor in Myanmar with 18 large projects totally worth nearly 2.2 billion USD.—MNA
