Berlin (VNA) – Vietnam’s products will be showcased at an exhibition in Leipzig city of Germany’s Saxony state from February 23 to March 3.

This year, based on the Ho Chi Minh City - Leipzig partnership, Vietnam has been invited to attend the fair for the first time as its main partner. Vietnamese products will be featured in the central area of the fair.

Italy and Spain were chosen as partners in the two previous editions of the event.

The exhibition is viewed as a chance for Vietnam to promote its socio-economic achievements over the years to international friends, and development of the agricultural and fisheries sectors, as well as bolster the country’s economic-trade and tourism relations.

It is also hoped to strengthen investment between Vietnam and Germany in particular, and between Vietnam and the European Union in general.

Covering a total area of about 120,000 sq.m and viewed among the largest consumer fairs in Germany, each year, the Leipzig exhibition attracts about 1,000 exhibitors from 20 countries and territories. It draws nearly 200,000 visitors annually, according to data of the FGM-Leipzig market research institute.-VNA
