The four-day event, which opened on September 22, has drawn the participation of enterprises from 28 export markets of Vietnam, along with businesses from 12 Vietnamese provinces and cities. 

At the event

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 the 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 which provides Vietnamese businesses with information on prospects and consumption trends of Vietnamese good and agricultural products in foreign markets, while foreign companies will get updated on the potential and strength of Vietnamese products.

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