JETRO to host Ha Noi trade fair
The Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) will host a trade fair in
Ha Noi on April 14-17 to introduce Japanese importers to
promising-looking local goods.
A JETRO official was quoted by the Japanese economic daily of Nikkei as
saying that "this event is the result of efforts made by Japanese
singer Ryotaro Sugi, Special Ambassador for Japan-Vietnam relations."
He added that rather than stereotypical souvenirs, the fair will
showcase stylish products that could be sold in Harajuku fashion stores
According to the daily, more than 150 items will be on display,
including bamboo and beaded bags, embroidered book covers and Bat Trang
pottery, a Hanoi speciality. In a bid to prevent counterfeiting, most
of the products will be offered only to Japanese importers./.
