More than 100 businesses from Thailand are showcasing their products at the fifth Made-in-Thailand Outlet 2011, which opened in Hanoi on April 21.

During the four-day fair, Thai businesses will introduce to Vietnamese customers products such as foods, drinks, household utensils, garments, jewelries, health and beauty care products, auto and bike parts, decorations and souvenirs.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Pham Thi Hong Thanh, Deputy Director of the Asia-Pacific Department under the Ministry of Industry and Trade, said that the fair is a good chance for the two countries’ investors and producers to exchange experience and expand business cooperation.

According to the Trade Commission of the Thai Embassy in Hanoi , the annual trade fair not only aims to promote Thailand ’s products but also offers an opportunity for Thai businesses to study the potential Vietnamese retail market and seek partners.

The event is jointly held by the Thai Ministry of Trade, the Embassy of Thailand in Vietnam and the Vietnam Trade Fair & Advertising Company (Vinexad)./.
