HCM City (VNA) – A HCM City products fair will be held in Moscow from September 9 to 14 at the Hanoi-Moscow Culture-Trade Complex (Incentra).

The major products to be showcased during the week are garments, leather footwear, handicrafts, wood products, agricultural products, and tourism and financial services.

Nguyen Phuong Dong, Deputy Director of the HCM City Department of Industry and Trade, said the event would be a good opportunity for city enterprises to introduce their quality goods to Russian consumers and explore investment opportunities in that market.

The exhibitors will receive support for participation, with Incentra sponsoring all booth rentals and providing rooms in its hotel at half price besides urging Vietnam Airlines to offer a 50 percent discount on cargo rates and two tickets for each company.

Firms have been told to register before August 10 for participation.

An exhibition of high-quality Vietnamese goods was held last November at the venue and attended by 163 Vietnamese firms, including 42 from HCM City, with many businesses managing to find long-term business partners.

A Hanoi products fair will be held there from October 6 to 14.

According to the fair's organisers, Russia is among Vietnam's traditional markets and has high demand for apparel, footwear, handicrafts, farm produce, processed foods and wooden products.-VNA
