Nearly 200 domestic businesses are showcasing their products at the 2013 Mekong Seafood Trade Fair in Ca Mau city as part of the national trade promotion programme.

The event, the largest of its kind in the southernmost province of Ca Mau, is organised by the Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP) and the provincial People’s Committee, taking place from October 29 - November 4.

This is a good opportunity for local firms to popularise their products at over 400 pavilions as well as promote trade and investment cooperation in the country and the Mekong Delta in particular.

Manufacturers will help local farmers promptly access and apply the latest machineries and science-technology in agricultural production.

Many discount schemes will be launched during the event to change the local habit of choosing foreign products, and buy high-quality Vietnamese goods instead.

Prestigious domestic companies and enterprises are invited to the fair with the aim of responding to the “Vietnamese people use Vietnamese goods” campaign, said Director of the Trade, Tourism and Investment Promotion Centre Tran Van Bo.-VNA
