Goods From China’s Zhejiang Province To Be Promoted In Hanoi

The 2016 Zhejiang export fair will be held in Hanoi from August 4 - 6, showcasing the best products hailing from the Chinese province, Vietnam News Agency (VNA) reports.

The fifth Zhejiang export fair will feature 150 booths of nearly 100 prestigious businesses, said Nguyen Khac Luan - General Director of the event's organiser - the Vietnam National Trade Fair and Advertising Company (Vinexad).

Products showcased will include machinery made in the province's Wenzhou and Taizhou cities, metal products from Jiaxing, garment materials from Hangzhou and Huzhou, and handicrafts from Yiwu, which have become popular in Southeast Asia, including Vietnam.

Luan said he hopes visitors to the fair can see the attraction of Zhejiang-made goods. It will also be an opportunity for businesses to seek partnerships.

Zhejiang is a coastal province located in the southeast of China with ideal natural conditions. It posted rapid economic growth in recent years and boasts economic relations with over 230 countries and territories around the world.

In the first half of 2016, the province exported US$9.36 billion worth of goods to ASEAN countries, a year-on-year increase of 1.81 per cent.

The turnover included US$2.13 billion of shipments to Vietnam, up 13.55 per cent from a year earlier.
