The event, from November 16-20, is being jointly held by the Vietnamese Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT) and Central Retail Vietnam at CentralWorld, one of the biggest commercial centres in the world.
Since its launch in 2016, the programme has made it easier for Vietnamese goods to access the distribution system of Central Group, a leader in retail and service business in Thailand, according to MoIT Deputy Minister Do Thang Hai.
