Hanoi (VNA) – Thailand’s internationally recognised brands will be nudged closer to Vietnamese consumers as the Top Thai Brands 2016, formerly known as the “Thailand Week” trade fair, is scheduled to take place in Ho Chi Minh City from May 6-8.

The fair, jointly held by the Department of International Trade Promotion under the Thai Ministry of Commerce and Thai Consulate-General in Ho Chi Minh City, is among many collaborative activities between Vietnam and Thailand.

The move aims to enhance trade and investment cooperation relations between the two countries while creating a platform for both Vietnamese and Thai enterprises to enlarge their networks and further develop strategic partnerships.

The Top Thai Brands 2016 offers tremendous business opportunities for various industries, including food and beverages, home appliances, automobile and motor spare parts, cosmetics and health care. It also covers other service sectors such as education, tourism, business franchising and catering services.

Alongside the Thai product exhibition, cultural performances, a cuisine showcase and a lucky draw will be included at the fair.

According to the organising board, Thai investors and enterprises have seen great potential in the Vietnamese market. The former “Thailand Week” has been successfully organised over the past 14 years, and billed as a venue for Thai enterprises to popularise their products as well as study the market and seek business opportunities in Vietnam, helping promote bilateral trade.-VNA
