A conference was held in the central province of Ha Tinh on July 19 to boost trade and investment among Vietnamese, Thai and Lao companies.

Enterprises from the corridor got a chance to promote their brands, expand markets and seek their partners.

The conference, associated with the 2013 International Trade Fair in the province, also helped tighten the solidarity, friendship and cooperation between Ha Tinh and its two foreign countries.
