|Top Thai Brands 2018 attracted 210 Thai firms to explore business opportuntities in Vietnam|
The four-day event features a great variety of quality Thai products and services and is expected to attract more visitors, including distributors and consumers alike. The expo also aims to create a business platform for both Thai and Vietnamese enterprises to expand their networks and develop partnerships.
Typical products from Thailand include home appliances, automobile and motorcycle parts and components, food and beverage, health and well-being, cosmetics, as well as pet related products. It also covers service sectors, including education, tourism, franchise, and restaurant.
Ureerat Ratanaprukse, the Thai consul general in Ho Chi Minh City, said, “After the Prime Minister of Vietnam’s official visit to Thailand in August last year, bilateral relations between Thailand and Vietnam have gained significant momentum, especially in the economic aspect.”
“Two-way trade volume reached $15 billion, with $9.3 billion of registered capital. This reflects the confidence of the Thai private sector in Vietnam’s vibrant economy,” she added.
Building upon our robust economic cooperation, Top Thai Brands further accentuates the global trend where “branding” holds added-value to the products and also widens opportunities for small- and medium-sized enterprises to grow.
The event not only creates business opportunities for the Thai private sector but also provides access for Vietnamese parties to top quality Thai products at reasonable prices, thus contributing to mutual benefits and partnerships between Thai and Vietnamese entrepreneurs.
Top Thai Brands 2018 is taking place from May 10 to 15 at Saigon Exhibition and Convention Centre in District 7. The exhibition is being organised by the Thai Trade Centre in Ho Chi Minh City in collaboration with Vietnam National Trade Fair & Advertising Company.
