HCM City (VNA) – A festival on consumer products from the Republic of Korea (RoK) opened in Ho Chi Minh City on November 25.

Co-organised by the RoK’s Ministry of Industry, Trade and Energy (MoITE) and the Korean Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA), the three-day event sees 50 RoK enterprises displaying their products like cosmetics, food, and home appliances.

There are also business-to-business exchanges between RoK and Vietnamese firms during the festival.

E-mart, the RoK’s largest distributor, is showcasing many famous RoK products which are on shelves of its supermarket in HCM City.

In addition, 1,000 prestigious products from well-known Korean brands such as Tony Moly, Enprani, Ottogi, Paldo and Daesang will be introduced to Vietnamese consumers, in addition to many interesting entertainment activities like a K-POP contest and K-POP dancing.

Kim Jae Hong, KOTRA Chairman, said the agency hoped the event would contribute to boosting bilateral trade, particularly in consumer goods, between the two countries.
