Hanoi (VNA) –
The Vietnam Dairy Products JSC (Vinamilk) signed a dairy export contract worth 20 million USD at Gulfood, one of the world’s largest exhibitions, in Dubai from February 16-20.

The company has participated in the annual event since 2013 with the aim of promoting its image and activities in the Middle East and seeking partners in nearby countries and Africa.

During the previous editions of the exhibition it won contracts worth millions of US dollar.

The Middle East has contributed more than 75 percent of Vinamilk’s total export revenue since the company began to enter the region in 2000, according to Mai Hoai Anh, Vinamilk’s Executive Director of International Sales.

Along with the Middle East, the company has stepped up its operations in other markets like Singapore, China and most of Southeast Asian nations, he said, noting that Vinamilk earned the Asian Export Awards 2019.

Last year, its export turnover expanded 14.8 percent as compared with 2018. Since 1997, its products have been shipped to more than 50 countries and territories, with total value surpassing 2.2 billion USD.

Apart from Vinamilk, the Vietnamese delegation to the event, headed by Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Tran Thanh Nam, included 19 other businesses.

First held in 1987, Gulfood Dubai 2020 brought together businesses from 193 countries and territories, with more than 5,000 booths./.
