Nakagawa Tetsuyuki, General Director of AEON MALL Vietnam stated that AEON always strives to promote the consumption of Vietnamese products as well as exports to the Japanese market.

“We had several memoranda of understanding with the Vietnamese Government, and the number of transactions is increasing significantly year by year. We hope this fair will accelerate these efforts and bring quality goods to consumers in Hanoi and the northern region,” said Nakagawa Tetsuyuki.

The second trade fair is expected to take place at AEON MALL Ha Dong from August 18 to 21.
