Mr. Dante Brandi - Consul General of Italy in Ho Chi Minh City said: "Vietnam Foodexpo is a chance for Italian food and beverage, food processing and packaging businesses to introduce products that Italy pioneers to offer to the Vietnamese market. The partnership between the two countries will be strengthened further when the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) is signed, in line with Italy's desire to become an important partner of Vietnam, especially in areas where the two countries’ economic cooperation can be more effective in the food sector”.
