The fair is taking place until August 7, showcasing a variety of unique Thai products in many industries, such as food and beverage, health and beauty products, kitchen appliances and home appliances, fashion and accessories, children's products, and others.

Patrons can also visit booths certified as Thai Select, Golden Elephant, and Soff Power to enjoy authentic Thai dishes, in addition to enjoying performances of music and dance imbued with the Thai culture.

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, Vietnam-Thailand trade revenue posted a record high of 19 billion USD in 2021, the highest ever level. The number is expected to expand in late 2022.

Director of the Thai Trade Office in Ho Chi Minh City under the Thailand Ministry of Commerce, SuparpornSookmark, said that Thailand and Vietnam have just set a new target of raising bilateral trade turnover to 25 billion USD by 2025.

The event will be an opportunity for enterprises of both sides to seize business opportunities, expand networks and strengthen cooperation relations, she added.

Thailand is Vietnam’s largest trading partner in ASEAN and the eighth largest foreign investor in Vietnam.
