The Vietnam – China international trade fair in the northern mountainous province of Lang Son from November 2-8 attracted nearly 8,000 visitors per day and earned over 50 billion VND (2.17 million USD).
About 60 Vietnamese and foreign exhibitors formed networking and introduced products, and half of them signed deals worth roughly 60 billion VND.
Deputy Director of the provincial Department of Industry and Trade and deputy head of the organising board Nguyen Quoc Hai said it is the largest-ever fair of its kind with the best quality products on display.
Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee and head of the organising board Nguyen Cong Truong said the annual event is held alternately in Lang Son and China’s Guangxi province.
The fair featured more than 320 stalls, 30 of which were by foreign and Chinese exhibitors.
The organising board also arranged two stalls showcasing fake and genuine products, making it easier for consumers to differentiate between them.
The event is expected to raise mutual understanding and tighten friendship between businesses and people from Vietnam and China, and from Lang Son and Guangxi in particular.
