A booth showing farm products from Việt Nam at the Rungis International Market in Paris in 2018.
A week of events showcasing Vietnamese agricultural products is scheduled to take place at the Rungis International Market in Paris, France from June 23 to July 2, according to the Hà Nội People’s Committee.
The event will attract the participation of nearly 20 enterprises that will introduce typical and popular products of Việt Nam including fresh and dried fruits, seafood, vegetables, canned drinks, processed farm produce, spices, tea, coffee and cashew nuts.
The committee describes the week as an important trade promotion event which will enable firms to establish stable and long-term distribution channels for their products in France while promoting their goods to other European markets.
It will also be a chance for businesses from the two nations to explore new co-operation opportunities, the committee said.
Within the framework of the event, the “Vietnamese Product Days” will be held at Thanh Bình Jeune supermarket outlet. Vietnamese tourism and cuisine will also be introduced at a number of restaurants in France from June 28 to 30.
Vietnamese enterprises will be offered the opportunity to work with Distribution Leader Price SNC to connect with its distribution system in France.
They will also work with Semmaris, the company that manages the Rungis International Market, to implement a feasibility study on investing in a wholesale agricultural product market in Hà Nội following the Rungis model.
Exports of major farm produce earned Việt Nam US$7.7 billion in the past five months.
During the period, aquatic products also brought home $3.15 billion including $795 million from tra fish and $1.1 billion from shrimp.
