Vientiane (VNA) – Nearly 100 enterprises from Vietnam and Laos are showcasing their products at the Vietnam-Lao Trade Fair 2015, which opened in Parkse city, Champasak province, Laos on December 22.

On the display at 150 booths are high-quality products including garment, footwear, agro-forestry-fishery products, fine-art and crafts, food, electronic and telecommunication products, among others.
Themed “Cooperation, Friendship and Development”, the fair is an economic-politic activity to celebrate 71st anniversary of the Vietnam People’s Army and 40th anniversary of the National Day of Laos.

It also offers opportunity for Lao consumers and visitors to have a closer look on Vietnamese products while serving as a venue for enterprises and investors from two countries to exchange experience and seek partners.

Earlier, Vietnam’s 175 Military Hospital held free medical check-ups and give away medicines to Lao impoverished people.

During the fair, the organising board plans to present 400 gifts, each worth 1 million VND (45.17 USD).-VNA
