Hanoi (VNA) – About 320 domestic and international companies will showcase their products at the 13th Vietnam International Trade Fair (Vietnam Expo) in Ho Chi Minh City from December 2-5.

The fair will take place at Saigon Exhibition and Convention Centre (SECC), featuring around 350 booths of exhibitors from 20 countries and territories worldwide, including the Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Japan, Thailand, China, Rumania, Sri Lanka and Indonesia, said Nguyen Khac Luan, General Director of the National Trade and Advertising Joint Stock Company (Vinexad), the event organiser.

The 5,000-sqm expo will be divided into three main exhibition sections – International Pavilion, Bicycles and Spare Parts, and Hand Tools – Hardware.

This year, Sri Lanka will participate for the first time, bringing to the fair high-quality multi-functional paints and coatings, natural skin-care products alongside a wide collection of jewellery and gems, Luan noted.

According to the general director, the Vietnam Expo has proved itself as an effective platform for Vietnam’s and overseas enterprises to seek opportunities in trade, investment, technological transfer and business partnership and gain access to more markets.

In addition, the 4 th Vietnam International Bicycle Exhibition (Vietnam Cycle 2015) will be held alongside the Vietnam Expo at the same location.

The event, the only of its kind, is organised under the patronage of the Ministry of Industry and Trade, Asia Bicycle Alliance, Vietnam Auto Motorcycle Bicycle Association (VAMOBA) and Vinexad.
