Hanoi (VNA) – The 2016 Zhejiang export fair will be held in Hanoi from August 4 – 6, showcasing the best products hailing from the Chinese province.

The fifth Zhejiang export fair will feature 150 booths of nearly 100 prestigious businesses, said Nguyen Khac Luan – General Director of the event’s organiser – the Vietnam National Trade Fair & Advertising Company (Vinexad).

Products on show will include machinery made in the province’s Wenzhou and Taizhou cities, metal products from Jiaxing, garment materials from Hangzhou and Huzhou, and handicrafts from Yiwu, which have become popular in Southeast Asia, including Vietnam.
