Trung Nguyen coffee, a well-known brand in Vietnam’s instant coffee market, has represented the country’s agricultural products at the China-ASEAN Expo (CAEXPO) in Nanning city of China, with the aim of promoting Vietnamese exports to the ASEAN-China Free Trade Area.

Trung Nguyen’s sales revenue in China last year totalled 1 trillion VND (47 million USD), nearly doubling the 2012 figure.

Trung Nguyen’s G7 coffee has also been sold by the US giant retailer Walmart in China for the last two years.

Titled “Maritime Silk Road of the 21 st Century”, the annual expo attracted 2,330 businesses showcasing their products and services in 4,600 booths.

This year, Vietnam’s 200 booths displayed products by 100 businesses, the biggest out of the ten ASEAN members.

The September 16-22 expo was jointly organised by China ’s Ministry of Trade and the 10 ASEAN member countries, constituting one of the top ten Chinese exhibitions and an important mechanism for the promotion of friendship and trade links between the two sides.-VNA
