At the opening ceremony, Ambassador Nguyen Manh Tuan emphasized that Vietnam has a number of favorable conditions to supply the international market with seafood and agricultural products such as vegetables and fruits, and dried food, especially tropical fruits.
Ambassador Nguyen Manh Tuan said that this program reflects the wishes and efforts of the Embassy and Lulu supermarket in promoting tropical fruits, vegetables, seafood, and other agricultural products of Vietnam to the UAE market in particular and the GCC regional market in general. It also acts as a bridge to help Vietnamese businesses approach and connect with regional partners and consumers. The Embassy believes that this festival contributes to further tightening trade relations between the countries.
The Embassy hopes the cooperation with the Lulu hypermarket will go a long way. The two sides share a commitment to meet the wishes of consumers in the UAE and GCC for high-quality, safe, delicious, and nutritious products from Vietnam, promoting the export of Vietnamese agricultural products as well as other non-food products.
