The pavilion, organized by the Agricultural Trade Promotion Centre under the Vietnam’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, showcases Vietnam’s key agricultural products by 20 Vietnamese leading enterprises operating in the food and beverage industry.

Some of the products have received great interest from the customers, such as pepper, fresh vegetables, rice, cashew nuts, and spices.

This year’s expo displays 120 national pavilions by more than 5,000 exhibitors around the world. The five-day event is expected to attract over 90,000 visitors from more 170 countries and territories worldwide.

The event offers a good opportunity for Vietnamese enterprises to reach customers and sign export deals, while developing their distribution channels and expanding their market share in the Middle Eastern, African, and Southwest Asian regions.

The participating businesses can also seek cooperation and investment in agricultural production, food and beverages through the expo.
