Da Nang (VNA) - The Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) is organising an exhibition in the central city of Da Nang to introduce typical products of all 63 cities and provinces across Vietnam to delegates from 21 APEC member economies.

The event, held within the framework of the Vietnam Business Summit and the APEC CEO Summit taking place from November 7-10 as part of the APEC 2017 Economic Leaders’ Week, also aims to boost Vietnamese tourism, call for investment and promote local brand products.

The 80-booth exhibition is hoped to attract more than 4,000 Vietnamese and international visitors, including those from leading businesses in the areas of trade, investment and tourism, economists and foreign media.

At the event, each locality introduces its key products in such fields as agriculture (fruits, vegetables, fisheries, forestry and livestock), industry (support industries, electronic components production, garment and footwear), transportation (expressway construction and cargo transportation through ports and railway stations) and tourism (ecotourism and tourism infrastructure improvement).

Visiting the exhibition on November 7, Gleb Zoubov, Director of Alpha Pacific Group, said this is the first time he has visited Vietnam and he is really impressed with the exhibition and products displayed here, especially Minh Long ceramic tableware.

“The ceramic products are very good and excellent with interesting and unique designs and good quality,” he commented.

As visitors are also informed of the cities and provinces’ investment encouragement policies, the exhibition seems to be an ideal destination for Vietnamese businesses to expand markets, increase exports, attract investment and enhance cooperation with APEC partners.
