Nearly 50 exhibitors from Ho Chi Minh City are showcasing their products at the Vietnam-Cambodia Trade-Service-Tourism Exhibition 2015 (Ho Chi Minh City Expo 2015) in Battambang city, 300km to the northwest of Cambodia.

On display at 80 pavilions are agricultural machinery, processed food, plastic products, and electronic equipment, among others.

The annual event is a venue to provide Cambodian consumers with a range of high-quality products, Vice Chairwoman of the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee Nguyen Thi Hong said in her opening remark on April 1, adding that it is expected to continue to be an effective bridge connecting Vietnamese businesses with Cambodian customers.

Chan Sosphon, Governor of Battambang province, spoke highly of the HCM City’s initiative to organise the event, stressing the exhibition will consolidate and elevate the traditional comprehensive cooperation between their two nations.

Numerous activities are scheduled to take place during the five-day exhibition, including cultural exchange programmes, art performances, free medical examinations and the offering of gifts to Vietnamese nationals and impoverished residents in Battambang.-VNA
