According to Vietnamese Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Tran Thanh Nam, the participating Vietnamese businesses aim to seek partners and study the taste of local consumers.
The exhibition takes place one year after the free trade agreement between Vietnam and the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) to which Russia is also a signatory took effect.
Nguyen Mai Oanh, Vice Chairwoman of the Vietnam Pepper Association, described the event as an important playground for the Vietnamese enterprises to make the best use of the agreement to export spices, including pepper.
Besides, Vietnamese firms have favourable conditions to seek Eastern European customers in the context that Western European countries are facing barriers when shipping products to Russia and Eastern Europe, she said.
The exhibition will last until September 14.
