A variety of products showcasing the diversity of Lao’s economy are on display at a four-day fair in Ho Chi Minh City for Laotian businesses.

Laos, situated along Vietnam’s western border, sits in an optimal location for businesses to operate between the two countries.

The Week for Laotian Companies’ Products in Ho Chi Minh City kicked off Wednesday and is due to end on January 28 in Le Van Tam Park, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City.

This event features 139 products sold by firms from across Laos, as well as Vietnamese companies with investments or commercial relationships in the market.

Over 100 booths arranged by region are showcasing products ranging from interior equipment to diverse local food specialties such as dried beef, dried pork, sugar, papaya salad, desiccated fruits; and sauces whose recipes have been passed down exclusively amongst Laotian family members.

The fair is jointly organized by Lao’s Consulate General and the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee in an effort to promote the popularity of the country’s goods in Vietnam.

This is the first time businesses from Laos have participated in such a large-scale, well-organized event, said Thongsavanh Phomvihane, the Laotian ambassador to Vietnam.
