In its sixth edition, this year’s event aims to showcase products from the Southern region of Vietnam and will feature the participation of seven localities, namely Ho Chi Minh City, Long An, Ben Tre, Kien Giang, Bac Lieu, Tra Vinh and Dong Thap.

In addition to the product displays, a Vietnam - Thailand trade connection conference will also be held.

Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Do Thang Hai expressed that after six years of continuous organization, the Vietnamese Goods Week in Thailand, organized by Central Retail Group, has had a significant impact, contributing to the growth of export turnover between the two countries by facilitating connections for hundreds of small- and medium-sized enterprises, enabling them to promote their local products in the Thai market.

Thailand has consistently been Vietnam’s top ASEAN commercial partner over the years.

In 2022, the total import-export turnover between the two countries reached USD 21.6 billion, up 15.1% compared to 2021, of which Vietnam’s exports amounted to USD 7.5 billion, up 21.5% year-on-year, while imports from Thailand reached USD 14.1 billion, up 12%. Both countries aim to elevate bilateral trade turnover to USD 25 billion in the near future.
