– A Vietnam-Turkey trade exchange was held in Ho Chi Minh City on October 19 with the participation of nine Turkish firms in herbal medicine and wooden product production.

The event was jointly organised by the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) chapter in Ho Chi Minh City and Turkey’s Mediterranean Furniture, Paper, Forest Products Exporters’ Association (AKIB).
