HO CHI MINH CITY (Vietnam News/ANN): A wide range of quality Thai products and services from 150 Thai leading firms are being showcased at Top Thai Brands, the biggest Thai trade fair in Vietnam, which opened on Thursday (Sept 17) in Ho Chi Minh City.

The annual trade fair serves as a platform for both Thai and Vietnamese enterprises to expand their networks and further develop strategic partnerships, said Suparporn Sookmark, director of the Thai Trade Centre in HCM City.

The four-day fair is expected to enhance bilateral relations and promote trade volume between the two countries with the aim of reaching US$20 billion in two-way trade turnover by 2020, she said at the fair’s opening ceremony.

Distributors and consumers will have a chance to explore an extensive range of Thai products and services with internationally recognised brands.

Nearly 200 booths are displaying various kinds of Thai products and services including apparel and fashion accessories, automobile and motorcycle parts and accessories, baby products, beauty and health care, food and beverage, home appliances and household products, airlines, education, and tourism.

With the concern on visitor’s safety amid the Covid-19 pandemic, the organiser will provide prevention measures including hand sanitiser in public areas, body temperature checks and reminders to wear face masks and wash hands.

The fair is being organised by the Department of International Trade Promotion (DITP) under the Ministry of Commerce of Thailand in co-operation with the Vietnam National Trade Fair and Advertising Company (Vinexad) at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Centre.

In the first six months of the year, Thailand was Vietnam’s second-largest source of foreign direct investment (FDI) with total investment capital of US$1.58 billion, according to the Ministry of Planning and Investment. —Vietnam News/Asia News Network
