The fair aims to promote the One Commune One Product (OCOP) program and facilitate the sale of specialties of localities via traditional and modern channels, Nguyen Minh Tien, Director of the Trade Promotion Center for Agriculture (Agritrade), said at a press conference on October 25.

The event is part of the “2022 Vietnamese craft village festival” hosted by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, he noted.

Featuring 150 booths, the fair will showcase agricultural, forestry and aquatic products that meet three-star ratings and above from cities and provinces nationwide such as Dien Bien rice, Hai Duong green bean cake, and Tan Cuong tea.

Handicrafts will also be displayed at the fair including Nha Xa silk from Hanoi’s Thanh Tri district, and Bo Bat pottery from Ninh Binh province.

According to Tien, the event is intended to be a bridge between production and consumption of OCOP products as well as to honor outstanding craft villages and skillful artisans.
