The event provides a platform for suppliers and buyers to connect with one another and diversify their supply sources of export-qualified products in many sectors such as furniture, household appliances, handicrafts, gifts, apparel, and fashion.

Hu Wei, CEO of Global Sources – an organiser of the fair, said as Vietnam is becoming a global production hub, his company realised that international business-to-business (B2B) buyers are tending to seek supply sources from Vietnam and neighbouring countries. Given this, it has held the Global Sourcing Fair Vietnam with the hope that this event will become an attractive annual event in Vietnam for international buyers.

Echoing the view, some promotional organisations and business associations noted the Global Sourcing Fair Vietnam 2023 with diverse activities will create favourable conditions for connecting buying and supplying enterprises.

Lasting through April 28, the event also includes investment and export workshops. Particularly, an onsite live tour provided by Global Sources on its website will help buyers seek products and contact exhibitors online.
