On display are OCOP products rated with three stars or higher, including cakes, sweets, milk, tea, wine, and fruits of Hanoi’s enterprises and cooperatives.

Visitors to the fair can purchase international products from some European countries and experience foreign culture and tourism services, tea, and cuisine from three regions of Vietnam.

Deputy Director of the Hanoi Centre for Investment, Trade and Tourism Promotion (HPA) Bui Duy Quang said the city’s Vietnam Regional Specialty Fair 2022 would be held on a larger scale than previous years, with 250 booths designed in both traditional and modern modules.

Participating manufacturers can partner with distributors, wholesale companies, e-commerce platforms, and some importers from South Korea, Japan, and Thailand during the fair.

"The fair is expected to be a good opportunity for companies and localities across the country to promote specialties to consumers and tourists at home and abroad, as well as to expand export activities," he said.

He added that it is also a place for distributors to seek supplies for year-end and Lunar New Year shopping.

The fair will also feature tourism promotion activities, including the showdown of craft village artisans' skills, Northwest tea tastings, and a specialty fruit festival.
