The selection of typical rural industrial products at the provincial level is a part of Phu Tho Province’s industry promotion program and is held every two years to honor quality products with high value and export potential.
Over the years, the Hung Vuong Fair has not only met the needs for domestic trade development, but also aims to promote Vietnam’s exports. This year’s fair continued to be a practical trade promotion channel, creating favorable conditions for businesses to promote trade and advertisement, and introduce their potential and products to visitors.
The items displayed at the fair are mainly farm produce, typical rural industrial products, and those of craft villages. In addition, the fair also exhibits and introduces essential consumer goods such as processed food, engineering products, agricultural machines, home appliances, fertilizers, and clothing.
Nguyen Tuan Oanh from the Doan Hung Grapefruit Cooperative said that through the fair, the cooperative’s products are introduced to visitors, promoting consumption and bringing greater economic benefit for local residents.
Through the fair, visitors can also learn about the local culture and buy typical products, thereby contributing to the Buy Vietnamese Goods campaign.
