“With this exhibition in Ho Chi Minh City, we hope to expand the number of customers in Vietnam. After this exhibition, we hope sales can increase by about 100%,” Valery Ivashko, representative of the Southeast Asia, Minsk Automobile Planth Company, told VTV.
This is not the first time Ivashko has attended fairs in Vietnam, but this event is considered a good opportunity for his company to expand its customers in the southern region. In addition to the Belarus national pavilion area, trade connection activities through seminars are also organized to support businesses from other countries.
“The previous exhibition sales increased by about 30%, I also expect this time to increase similarly or higher,” said Tran Quang Manh, Sales Director of Nhat Minh Company.
Expectations of increased sales after the fair are not unfounded. According to statistics from the organizing committee, last year, Vietnam Expo had about 850 direct trade transactions at the fair. The companion event, the Vietnam Supporting Industry Fair, also sets aside a separate area for Vietnamese companies in this field.
