The provincial People’s Committee organised a ceremony to kick off the two-day "Thai Binh Homecoming Day" programme and the Red River Delta International Agriculture Fair, with the participation of former President of the RoK Lee Myung Bak, former Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang, former Politburo member and Permanent member of the Secretariat Tran Quoc Vuong and RoK Ambassador Choi Young Sam, among others.

In his remarks, Chairman of the People’s Committee Nguyen Khac Than briefed the participants on Thai Binh’s traditional culture, saying the events are set to facilitate the access of Korean firms and investors to the Vietnamese market and Thai Binh, as well as create an opportunity for domestic enterprises to expand their partnership networks and promote their products.

Thai Binh hopes for stronger relations between both countries and peoples, with more opportunities for cultural exchanges between the two sides, he continued.

This is the first time Thai Binh has organised such important events honouring the traditional cultural values of the RoK and Vietnam and the province in particular.

Notably, the fair, part of the national trade promotion programme 2023, features more than 400 booths by over 220 domestic and foreign businesses, about half from the RoK.
