Seventeen Vietnamese businesses have registered to take part in an international food and beverage exhibition (Foodex Japan 2015), scheduled for March 3-6 in Chiba prefecture, Japan.
The Vietnamese business delegation left for Japan on March 1 with the aim of introducing the brandname of Vietnamese farm produce, food and beverage to consumers in Japan and from Asian countries.
Foodex Japan 2015 is expected to attract 2,800 pavilions from 83 regional countries and territories in Asia and around 75,000 visitors including trade partners.
Dao Van Ho, director of the Agricultural Trade Promotion Centre under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD), said local businesses aim to earn higher export turnover from the Japanese market, especially seafood and beverage. They also hope to exchange market information, learn experience and sign contracts with trade partners from Japan and other north-eastern Asian countries, Ho added.
In the near future, Vietnamese exporters will pay more concern to demanding markets, such as the US, European Union (EU), Russia, and India, he revealed.
