HCM CITY — HCM City-based manufacturing, services and tourism companies will showcase their products at an exhibition to be held in the Myanmar's capital Yangon from June 15 to 19.
The organiser, the HCM City Investment and Trade Promotional Centre (ITPC), told a press conference in HCM City that the Ho Chi Minh City Expo 2012 follows a successful exploratory trip to Myanmar by a business delegation last month.
HCM City and Yangon leaders had then signed agreements to promote their economic, cultural, and investment ties.
The five-day exhibition will offer Vietnamese businesses an opportunity to promote their products and look for partners to set up distribution networks in Myanmar.
Huynh Tan Phong, deputy director of ITPC, said some 160 booths would exhibit a range of products such as food, processed food, plastics, agricultural products, furniture, textile and garment, footwear, cosmetics, electronics, household appliances, and construction materials.
Tourism services and construction and computer software design services will also be showcased.
Besides the display of products, the event will also highlight HCM City's economic, political and socio-cultural achievements and the close ties between Viet Nam and Myanmar.
ITPC will survey Yangon and Mandalay for locations to establish a centre to sell and distribute Vietnamese products. — VNS
