A fair on industry and trade in the Northern Central Coastal region was launched in Dong Ha City, Quang Tri province, on July 8, featuring around 500 exhibition booths run by nearly 240 domestic and international businesses.

The exhibition space showcases signature products and services from Quang Tri province, Vietnam and the other EWEC nations like Laos and Thailand.

The fair aims to highlight the progress made in terms of socio-economic development in the participating provinces and boost trade, cooperation and technology transfer between these localities and EWEC nations.

It was jointly organised by the provincial People’s Committee and the Vietnam Trade Promotion Agency under the Ministry of Industry and Trade as part of the celebratory events to mark the 70 th anniversary of the August Revolution (August 19) and National Day (September 2), and to kick start the Quang Tri Economic Forum 2015, which aims to connect the countries in the East-West Economic Corridor (EWEC).
