The Mini Thailand Week 2017 was opened in Can Tho city on July 7, offering a chance to people in the southwestern region to try quality products and services of Thai businesses.

The week, one of cooperation activities to boost relations and trade between Vietnam and Thailand, is organised by the Thai Ministry of Commerce’s Department of International Trade Promotion and the trade office of Thailand in HCM City.

Its key event is an exhibition featuring 120 booths of 83 Thai companies that display a wide range of products such as agricultural tools, food and beverages, health and beauty care products, household appliances, leather goods, and jewellery.

Thai firms also give visitors advice on studying and travel in Thailand and promote trade and investment to seek new markets in the southwestern region of Vietnam.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Consul general of Thailand in HCM City Ureerat Ratanaprukse said as of July 2017, Thailand’s investment in the Mekong Delta region approximated $400 million with 88 projects.

She expressed her hope that the Mini Thailand Week 2017 will help bolster the two countries’ economic ties, provide visitors with various Thai products with high quality and reasonable prices, and create partnership opportunities for Thai and Vietnamese firms.
