The 2nd Vietnamese Goods Expo currently organized in Bangkok, Thailand is generating great responses from local consumers, who show particular love for Vietnam’s food.

The food section was crowded with waves of customers waiting try delicious Vietnamese dishes as soon as the expo opened on Thursday.

The two most ordered dishes are banh mi (Vietnamese bread) and pho (Vietnamese noodle soup with beef).

Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao, owner of a banh mi booth said she sold more than 100 loaves, each costing 65 baht (US$2), on the first day.

There have been long lines of customers in front of booths selling pho during the past two days.

The Vietnamese Goods Expo is being held at the Central Plaza Ladprao shopping center from August 17 to 21, promoting a few dozen goods from 40 Vietnamese companies and manufacturers.

Besides the signature Vietnamese foods, there are other Vietnam-made products showcased at the expo such as clothes, footwear and souvenirs.

Nguyen Xuan Ton, director of Xuan Trieu Coffee Co., said many Thai tourists have bought his coffee during their visits to Vietnam before, so he decided to bring his product to Thailand this time to reach more consumers.

Representatives of Minh Long Pottery Co., a Vietnamese firm famous for its high-quality potterware, stated that the expo is an excellent chance to learn about the Thai market and its consumers.

On Friday, Vietnamese firms participating at the expo met with representatives of Central Group, a giant Thai retailer, to discuss opportunities to introduce Vietnamese products into their store chains.
