Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh City Export Furniture Fair (HawaExpo) 2023 is scheduled to take place from February 22 to 25, opening a series of trade promotion events in the wood sector this year.
The fair will be organised by the Vietnam Timber and Forest Product Association (VIFOREST) and the wood industry organisations of some localities strong at this sector like HCM City and the provinces of Binh Duong, Dong Nai, and BinhDinh, Chairman of the Handicraft and Wood Industry Association of HCM City (HAWA) Nguyen Quoc Khanh told a press briefing on February 9.
It will be an important event for trade promotion cooperation across the industry and expected to generate fruitful outcomes for trade and investment partnerships, he added.
With about 1,600 booths, HawaExpo 2023 is set to gather major producers and exporters of Vietnam. It has also received nearly 1,000 registrations for visit from partners in traditional export markets including the US and Europe, as well as new ones like the Middle East and India.
Khanh noted aside from displaying and introducing products, the fair will feature business matching events, tours of factories, and specialised workshops to help enterprises and partners stay updated with market information and production capacity to boost ties.
HawaExpo 2023 will also be a demonstration of the wood sector’s resolve to move to higher levels in value chains, the HAWA leader added.
