Some 10,000 people flocked to a three-day Vietnamese goods fair in Vinh Gia commune, Tri Ton district, the Mekong Delta province of An Giang , on the border with Cambodia.

Twenty businesses from regional provinces and Ho Chi Minh City joined the event, showcasing food, agricultural, forestry and craft products, garments and local specialties in 40 booths.

The fair from November 1 – 3 generated over 1.1 billion VND (52,400 USD) in revenue for the firms, much higher than organisers’ estimate and the figures at the previous three fairs held in the locality this year.

This was part of the “Bringing Vietnamese Goods to Rural Areas” programme, co-organised by the Vietnam Trade Promotion Agency and the An Giang Trade and Investment Promotion Centre.-VNA
