The Central Group Vietnam will cooperate with the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT) to hold “Vietnamese Week in Thailand 2017” at Central Plaza Ladprao Bangkok in the Thai capital.

This second Vietnamese Week in Thailand will promote “Made in Vietnam” brands in international markets and especially among Thai consumers.

The week will run from July 27 to August 2 at Central Plaza Ladprao Bangkok, which is one of the largest complexes in the Thai capital of Bangkok.

The annual event aims to promote the trade and export of Vietnamese products to countries in the region and the world and, in particular, increase the presence of Vietnamese goods in Thailand.

With a strong commitment to support the sustainable development of domestic suppliers and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Vietnam, Vietnamese Week in Thailand 2017 will feature Vietnamese-made products such as pottery, lacquer, silk, and wooden furniture as well as Vietnamese specialties such as fruit and processed food.

There will also be a Vietnamese food area to introduce famous food such as bread, “pho”, and grilled rolls.

There were more than 140 Vietnamese-made items displayed at Vietnamese Week in Thailand 2016 at the Central World Trade Center on an area of over 550,000 sq m, which welcomed some 150,000 visitors.

Vietnamese brands such as Dien Quang, Minh Long ceramics, Saigon beer, Hoa Tho textiles, Tam Lan tea, and Highlands coffee were warmly received by Thai consumers.

Vietnam-Thailand bilateral trade has grown by more than 40 per cent over the last five years, reaching nearly $13 billion last year. A goal of $20 billion in two-way trade by 2020 has been set.
