Some 200 enterprises will participate in the 2017 International East-West Economic Corridor (EWEC) Trade and Tourism Fair to be held on August 11 to 16 at 29/3 Square on 2/9 Street in the central city of Da Nang by the Da Nang People’s Committee, the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

From 250 to 300 booths will set up at the fair, showcasing products and services in fields such as electricity, electronics, information technology, furniture, interior décor, handicrafts, hotels, restaurants, food, fashion, garments, footwear, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics, among others.

The fair will feature the participation of not only enterprises from 15 nearby cities and provinces in Vietnam but also international businesses and organizations from Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Hungary, and Indonesia, etc.

A workshop on cooperation and the development of services on the EWEC and a conference on supply and demand links will also be held, providing opportunities for businesses, manufacturers, and distributors to meet, discuss, connect, and cooperate.

The International EWEC Trade and Tourism Fair was first held in 2007 and has been held annually since 2012. It aims to assist EWEC countries in promoting their economic, trade, investment, and tourism potential and also foster collaboration.

The EWEC is an economic development program initiated to promote the development and integration of four Southeast Asian countries: Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam. The concept was agreed upon in 1998 at the Ministerial Conference of the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS), organized in Manila, the Philippines. The corridor became operational on December 12, 2006.

It was created based on a road stretching 1,450 km across Myanmar, Thailand, Laos and Vietnam, from Mawlamyine in Myanmar to Da Nang in Vietnam, and is one of the key economic corridors in the GMS, which aims at deepening integration and trade and investment links, and reducing poverty in the region.
