Well-known brand names such as Kinh Do confectionery, Vissan food, Duy Tan plastic, Vinh Hung plastic, Gia Dinh clothes, and Saigon Cosmetic were purchased in large volume.

Fertilizer and pesticide stalls also attracted a lot of customers
because Battambang is one of four agricultural provinces in the
northwest of Cambodia.

The Southern Fertilizer Corporation’s export turnover to the country
reached US$4 million last year. Average export growth rate to this
market touched 15 percent a year, said deputy head of the company’s market department Nguyen Ngoc Khai.

Deputy Chairwoman of the HCMC People’s Committee Nguyen Thi Hong said
that businesses should keep their goods quality good with diversified
designs and quickly develop distribution networks in Cambodia where
the number local people advocating Vietnamese goods has more and more
increased.

ITPC Director Pho Nam Phuong said that the center would organize
larger scale fairs and boost trade promotion to connect Vietnamese
businesses with residents in the northwest of Cambodia in the time
ahead.
