Vietnamese products including rice, coffee, cashew nuts, and ceramics are on display at the 18th International Trade and Investment Fair (MIF) opened in Macau on October 17.
The annual four-day event, the largest of its kind hosted by Macau, aims to encourage inter-regional and international economic and trade ties.
Businesses consider it a useful forum for exchanging information, exploring potential partnerships, and discovering investment opportunities.
This year’s fair features more than 1,900 pavilions and 4,600 exhibitors from 50 countries and territories. Pavilion and participant numbers are up 4.6 percent and 17 percent respectively compared to 2012.
Vietnam’s pavilion attracted major attention from visitors interested in farm produce and handicrafts.
Vietnam’s Consul General in Hong Kong and Macau (China) Nguyen Thi Nha said Vietnam is using the MIF to introduce its economic potential, its culture, and its landscapes.
Since its launch in 1996, the trade fair has grown into a key pillar supporting Macau’s economic development.
