Deputy minister Alkhamies expressed appreciation for the efforts connecting business to business. “We, at the Ministry of Economy and Planning, are also proud to lead the Saudi-Vietnam Joint Committee with the goal of strengthening relations and increasing collaboration between both public and private sectors,” he said.
The Saudi business people and guests were led to tour the exhibits while their Vietnamese prospective counterparts were able to view it live. A business-to-business video counteractive session concluded the first day of the event.
A wide range of products is on display. The largest section of the exhibition is dedicated to agricultural and processed foodstuff, including a variety of rice and noodles, coffee, tea, herbs, fresh fruits and spices. Another section showcases garments and fashion wear, including kids’ fashion.
