A high-quality Vietnamese goods fair will take place from November 11 to December 12 at the Hanoi-Moscow Centre for Culture, Trade and Hotels in Moscow.

According to organisers at the news conference on July 14, the fair will bring together Vietnamese companies, Vietnamese enterprises operating in Russia, Russian companies, companies in the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) that trade Vietnamese goods, travel agencies, banks and food companies.

The fair, whose exhibition space spreads across 15,000 square metres, will provide an opportunity for Vietnamese companies to introduce their products, promote their brands, approach partners, boost trade, expand markets and develop a network of local outlets and distributors.

The fair is a one of series of events to welcome the free trade agreement between Vietnam and the EAEU and helps prepare Vietnamese companies to obtain shares in the Russian market once the agreement takes effect.

Ta Hoang Linh, Deputy Director of the trade promotion agency under the Ministry of Industry and Trade, said that Russia is a potential market for Vietnam with a total trade volume of 3.5 billion USD.

The two governments hope to bring the figure to 10 billion USD by 2020, Linh said.-VNA
