Over 200 firms from 18 cities and provinces nationwide will participate in the 2013 Red River Delta – Hai Duong industry and trade fair in the northern province of Hai Duong from November 21-26.

The fair’s organising board said at a press briefing in Hai Duong on November 18 that the firms will put on show industrial and handicraft products and consumer goods at more than 400 booths.

There will be business seminars to provide exhibitors with information about the market and trade demand in the region, thus making it easier for them to strike deals.

As part of the 2013 national trade promotion programme, this year’s fair will also come as a response to the campaign “Vietnamese use Vietnamese goods”.-VNA
