Vietnam joined more than 680 businesses from 31 countries and 1,900 others from Mozambique to showcase their products at the Maputo International Trade Fair (FACIM) from August 31 to September 6.
Supported by the Vietnamese Embassy, the Hanoi Trade Corporation (Hapro) introduced a wide range of products, such as rice, food, instant noodle, Trung Nguyen coffee, and Kim Anh tea.
On display are also mobile phones, telephones, VAT on Internet and website services delivered by Movitel – a joint venture between Vietnam´s Viettel Group and Mozambique´s SPI and Invespar Company, which lured great attention from Mozambique customers.
During meetings under the framework of the trade fair, Mozambique businesses showed their keen interest in importing equipment and construction materials, timber processing, and food, particularly rice and corn, preservation from Vietnam.
Vietnam’s returning to the FACIM after five years marks an initial step in infiltrating the potential market in South Sahara – the most dynamic economic region in Africa./.
