Hanoi (VNA) – The Made in Thailand Outlet offers a good chance for enterprises from Thailand and Vietnam to expand their trade cooperation, said Trade Counsellor at the Thai Embassy in Vietnam Ponpimon Petcharakul at the opening ceremony of the 2016 outlet in Hanoi on May 26.

As a counselor in charge of trade, she vowed to help popularise Thai products in Vietnam and made-in-Vietnam goods in Thailand.

According to the organising board, this year’s four-day event has attracted 120 Thai businesses showcasing their outstanding products at 150 booths.

The items include food, beverages, household commodities, garment and textiles, jewellery, electrical appliances, health and beauty products, and auto parts.

Statistics from the Vietnamese Ministry of Industry and Trade showed that bilateral trade doubled in the 2011-2015 period.
