NDO – The online international trade promotion conference for Vietnamese food and agricultural products in 2020 opened in Hanoi on September 22, promising to promoting Vietnamese food and agricultural products’ export potentials.

Co-organised by the Vietnam Trade Promotion Agency (Vietrade) under the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the overseas Vietnamese trade offices and the US Agency for International Development (USAID), the four-day event has drawn the participation of enterprises from 28 export markets of Vietnam, along with businesses from 12 Vietnamese provinces and cities.

Vietrade Director Vu Ba Phu said this is the largest ever online trade promotion event in the food and agricultural product sector.

He noted that the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted supply chains in the sector, while demand for food has not decreased.

Therefore, Vietrade has been holding a series of online trade promotion conferences to assist domestic agricultural and food businesses in maintaining connections with markets, thus easing the negative impacts of the pandemic.

The conference will include a plenary session to provide Vietnamese businesses with information on prospects and consumption trends of Vietnamese goods and agricultural products in foreign markets, while foreign companies will receive updates on the potentials and strengths of Vietnamese products.

In addition, one-on-one business matching sessions will be held between Vietnamese suppliers and foreign importers.
