Japanese experts are on hand to advise Vietnamese wood processors and handicraft makers on design and marketing in their country.

The fair provides domestic wood processors an opportunity to introduce their products to oversea markets and gauge foreign consumers’ requirements.

Exhibitors who are unable to put up a booth at the fair can advertize their wares on www.hcmexpo.com.vn and www.tradeshow.com.vn.

The exhibition, being organized by the city Department of Industry and Trade, will run until October 10.
