It also offers an opportunity for the participating businesses to showcase their creativity and signature identity of their products, thus helping to increase their competitiveness and promote made-in-Vietnam products to international visitors, importers and distributors.

The exhibits will be arranged in two spaces, one dedicated to honoring Hanoi’s traditional crafts, such as bamboo and rattan, ceramics, silk, and lacquer, and the other will showcase products by villages nationwide which have participated in the OVOP programme.

Since several months ago, craftsmen in Phu Vinh village, Chuong My district, in Hanoi, have been busy with the installation of the “Cloud’ house, which has been created from thousands of bamboo and rattan baskets.

As this is the first time that Phu Vinh bamboo and rattan products will be showcased at such a large scale exhibition, the villagers consider it a fruitful opportunity to introduce their signature products to visitors at home and abroad.

Artisan Nguyen Van Tinh, who was born in a family with three successive generations working in making bamboo and rattan in the village, said that the exhibition is a promising venue for him and his fellow villagers to establish connections with new trade partners and reach customers.

Meanwhile, Thuy Ung villagers in Hoa Binh commune, Thuong Tin district in Hanoi, are completing the final steps in the making of combs, accessories and jewelry from buffalo horns to be displayed at the exhibition.

Not only being consumed domestically, but the village’s products have also been exported abroad and won much interest and appreciation from foreign consumers. According to Vu Thanh Liem, his firm’s combs have been exported to Japan at a cost of more than VND700,000 each.

In Ha Thai lacquer village in Duyen Thai commune, Thuong Tin district, Do Hung Chieu, the owner of Chieu Ha firm, has worked to diversify the designs of their lacquer products and make the products more highly applicable in modern life.
