Hanoi (VNA) – A tra fish and Vietnamese seafood product fair will be held from October 6-8 at the Agricultural Exhibition Centre in Hanoi’s Cau Giay district.

The fair is an opportunity for businesses, distributors and consumers to popularise their images and brand names, promote consumption of tra fish and fish products in the domestic market in general and the northern market in particular, and boost the expansion of international and regional markets, partcicularly the Chinese market. In addition, it is also a chance for businesses to expand, connecting distributors, supermarkets and consumers inside and outside the country.

The fair is expected to attract over 100 booths of domestic and foreign enterprises, showcasing seafood products such as tra fish, value added products and auxiliary products for tra fish production and other key Vietnamese seafood items.

Tran Dinh Luan, deputy general director of Directorate of Fisheries, said the tra fish products exhibited at this fair must be fully labeled and the origin should be easy to trace.

The fisheries directorate will support to expand distribution channels to consumers via wholesale and retail centres in the north, thereby boosting sales in the potential domestic market of 92 million people, Luan added.

Under the framework of the tra fish and Vietnamese seafood product fair this year, three main events will take place - a workshop on tra fish production and consumption, an exhibition with over 100 booths and a cuisine programme introducing dishes made from tra fish by famous chefs.-VNA
