Seoul (VNA) – The Vietnam-Korea Businessmen and Investment Association (VKBIA) has joined the organiser of the ongoing International Agriculture Exhibition (IAE) 2019 in Jeollanam province, the Republic of Korea, to run several activities at the event.

The VKBIA and ten Vietnamese firms are showcasing their services and products at the IAE 2019, one of the most important trade promotion events in agriculture in the RoK, which is underway from October 17 to 27 and attracting more than 400 exhibitors from 30 countries and territories worldwide.

As a result of collaboration between the association and the organiser, Vietnam is hosting a Vietnam Day in the framework of the IAE to promote the nation’s people and landscape.

The VKBIA, together with the organiser and the Vietnamese Embassy in the RoK, also held a business matching event for Vietnamese and Korean firms on October 18, during which cooperation pacts, particularly those related to high-tech application, were signed.

At the exhibition, the association and the Jeollanam research institute for agricultural technique inked a memorandum of understanding on comprehensive partnership, opening up a new door for Vietnamese farm produce and R&D products to enter the Korean market.

The VKBIA also sealed cooperation deals with the Mekong Delta business club and Hau Giang province’s Vietnam – RoK economic collaboration office, both from Vietnam.

On the occasion, Governor of Jeollanam province and head of the IAE organizing committee Kim Yung-RoK  presented an insignia to VKBIA Chairman Tran Hai Linh for his significant contributions to the IAE./.
