Yong Mi Sook, Head of Agricultural Product Distribution and Circulation Department of Chungcheongbuk, shared that this is the province’s first time promoting local agricultural products in Vietnam. The province brings famous agricultural products such as fresh grapes, kimchi, seaweed, coniferous leaves, dried fruits, and processed foods to this program.

“We see great potential in the Vietnamese market as consumers here are very fond of products from Korea, Korean food, and love Korean culture, especially young people,” Yong Mi Sook added.

Chungcheongbuk-do, located in the center of the country, is the only locality in Korea not adjacent to the sea. It enjoys a cool year-round climate, with mild winters and moderate summers. Thanks to these favorable climatic conditions, the province has been able to develop the growing and production of delicious quality vegetables and fruit trees.
