After the first fair day, some companies got the first memorandum of understanding with customers such as Binh Nga company, Hien Uyen Vi company, Minh Long company ... These are very encouraging results due to very thoughtful preparation of photos and products of the Organizing Committee as well as the participating businesses. Talking with Vietnamese businesses at the fair, the purchasing director of the ASA Selection of Germany said many customers expressed a special interest in Vietnamese crafts, they especially appreciated Vietnam's products on sustainability and compliance with international standards that Vietnamese businesses have been implementing. With a lot of fluctuations in the region, Vietnam is being recognized as a source of goods, a reliable destination for importers of crafts and home decorations around the world.
