Meeting Vietnamese Ambassador to Italy Duong Hai Hung, Piraccini hailed the potential of Vietnamese farm produce and thanked the diplomat for partnering with Macfruit to introduce Vietnamese products over the past two years.

He said Macfruit 2023 will become more special with the International Blueberry Days, a new exhibition dedicated to the world of spices and herbs, and another on plant nursery and varietal innovation.

Hung, for his part, wished that Vietnam will be present at the event this year to continue bringing quality agricultural and specialty products, especially fruits and vegetables that meet market demand in Italy, the European Union and international markets.

He said it is not only an opportunity to popularise Vietnamese products but also to enable Vietnamese localities and firms to learn about the latest technologies in hi-tech agriculture, plant nursery and innovation in fruit cultivation.

The Vietnamese Embassy in Italy previously joined the events in 2021 and 2022.
