Representatives from Vietnamese ministries and business are attending the 16th Consumer Fair in the Sri Lankan capital city of Colombo from April 2-11.

Vietnamese Ambassador to Sri Lanka Ton Sinh Thanh highly valued the participation of Vietnamese businesses and expressed his hopes that they will exploit the potential market in Sri Lanka in fields of trade, investment and tourism, contributing to boosting economic cooperation between the two countries.

This is the first time major Vietnamese businesses have taken part in the fair since Vietnam opened its embassy in Sri Lanka one year ago.

Viglacera Company, T&T Motorbikes, PP Paper and Halo Handicrafts are putting their products on display at the expo.

Vietnamese pavilions also showcase images on the country’s culture and tourism as well as publications on the relationship between Vietnam and Sri Lanka .

On this occasion, the Vietnamese Embassy in Sri Lanka also held a meeting with businesses from the two countries on April 6 to help them seek partners and expand their markets.-VNA
