The Vietnam International Trade Fair (Vietnam Expo 2016) will be held from April 13 to 16 at the Hanoi International Exhibition Center (ICE) at 91 Tran Hung Dao Street in Hanoi’s Hoan Kiem district.
With a theme of “Enhancing Regional and Global Economic Links”, the Expo will assist exhibitors and other participants to promote their business brands and operations, exchange business information, and seek potential partners and cooperative deals while also improving Vietnam’s attractiveness as a destination for foreign investment.
According to the organizer, Vinexad, the Expo will have some 450 exhibitors from 20 countries and territories such as South Korea, Uganda, the Czech Republic, Sri Lanka, Japan, Singapore, and South Africa displaying their products in 520 booths.
Vietnam Expo 2016 will also see the participation of Vietnamese enterprises that won a Vietnam Value Award for strong brand names, including the Vietnam Electrical Equipment Joint Stock Corporation (GELEX), the Tran Phu Electrical Mechanical JSC, the Binh Minh Plastics JSC, the Duy Tan Plastics JSC, the Hanoi Trade Corporation, and the Hoa Tho Textile - Garment Joint Stock Corporation.
A large number of participants will come from Belarus, hoping to contribute to promoting comprehensive relations between the country and Vietnam and boosting cooperation between enterprises on both sides in science and technology, defense, education, healthcare, culture, sports, and tourism.
2016 will be a pivotal year for Vietnam’s economy as it further integrates into the global economy after signing free trade agreements (FTAs) such as the EU - Vietnam FTA and the Vietnam - South Korea FTA, together with the TPP and the establishment of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC).
Vinexad expects that this year’s Expo will welcome around 20,000 visitors.
