Vietnam and other ASEAN countries are invited to the fair, the 14th of its kind, as Laos wants to display their products and strengths in the field to prepare for the ASEAN Community (AC) which will be officially formed by end of this year, said Chairman of the Lao Fine Arts Association, Hansana Sisane.
The event features more than 550 booths, showcasing a wide range of products such as brocade, silk, wooden furniture, rattan and jewelry.
A workshop aimed at providing information on the regional world markets for local handicraft trades is set to open during the five day event.
In addition, a competition on handicraft products and a show of ASEAN countries’ traditional costume will also be held./.
