Over 30 Vietnamese furniture companies are showing their products at the International Furniture Fair Singapore 2015 (IFFS-2015), taking place from March 13-16.

Vietnamese Trade Counsellor in Singapore Nguyen Viet Chi said that this year’s event included an increasing number of Vietnamese participants, as the event presents an opportunity for them to promote their products as well as access the design trend and consumers’ taste to foster exports to other foreign markets.

It is also a forum for wooden furniture enterprises to tighten relations with their frequent customers and seek potential new clients.

Numerous visitors to Vietnamese booths, mostly Singaporean retailers and wholesalers, voiced their commendation of the unique and high-quality Vietnamese wooden products and interior decor.

According to statistics, Vietnam generated 15.8 million USD in wooden product exports to Singapore in 2014, up 40 percent from the previous year.

The IFFS, one of Asia’s largest annual trade fairs for furniture and interior design, drew the participation of 39 countries and territories worldwide including 16 from Asia.-VNA
