The Vietnam International Business Centre (VIBC) was officially inaugurated in Hanoi on October 10 following a successful three-month trial.
The VIBC’s combined commercial and exhibition centre is the first of its kind in Vietnam, attracting famous brands including Viettel, FPT, Nino, and Pico.
It houses pavilions of the Canadian, Egyptian, South African, and Argentinean embassies, as well as of leading Vietnamese craft bodies such as the Engineering Association, Traditional Craft Village Association, Lighting Association, and Vietnamese Culture Association.
The organising board said VIBC’s International and Associations Areas will create a space promoting Vietnam’s economic image to the world and encouraging cooperation between foreign and domestic businesses. Participating brands can also consult directly with their Vietnamese customer base.
On the opening day, the VIBC’s investors donated VND1 billion to the Vietnam Red Cross’ “Helping Poor Pupils Attend School” initiative.
