According to Jeffrey AU, head of International Sales Office Asia at Informa Markets, Vietnam has a rich culinary background with delicious dishes famous from all over the world and beautiful natural scenery, which has always been a favourite destination of tourists in recent years.

People's living standards have been improved, so the demand to enjoy food and wellness experiences is also increasing rapidly, creating favourable conditions for the food and hotel industry to develop in the future, he noted.

Nobuyuki Matsumoto, chief representative of the office of the Japan Trade Promotion Organisation (JETRO) said in the post-COVID-19 pandemic, the food, restaurant and hotel industries need to catch up with the trend, increase connectivity and acquire new technologies and products. Through Food & Hotel Vietnam 2022, the Organising Committee wishes to act as a bridge for participants to explore business opportunities and find potential partners as well as update new technologies and products for enterprises in the industry./.
