As many as 200 businesses including Cambodia companies are promoting their products at a trade fair which kicked off on May 28 in Xuan To industrial zone, Tinh Bien district, southern An Giang province.

Tinh Bien–An Giang International Trade Fair 2013, now in its seventh year, evolved from a border trade fair.

It saw the presence of over 500 booths, introducing a wide range of items such as agricultural and aquatic products, foodstuff, household appliances, garments and textiles, machinery, construction materials and tourism products.

The event is a chance for domestic enterprises, especially those in the Mekong Delta region, to increase investment cooperation with other partners in the Mekong Sub-region, paving the way for the formation of a trade route from the Mekong Delta provinces of Vietnam to neighbouring Cambodia and other ASEAN countries.

During the 6-day fair, a number of events are scheduled to take place, including a seminar on trade connectivity in the Mekong Sub-region and other cultural, artistic and culinary activities.-VNA
