The Vietnamese Embassy in Turkey has introduced the country’s traditional products at the 27th Annual Charity Bazaar held by the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs Spouses’ Solidarity Association (DMEDD) in Ankara.
This year’s November 25 event featured more than 100 stalls of over 40 representative agencies from foreign countries.
Visitors come to Vietnam's booth at the charity bazaar.
Vietnam’s two stalls displaying traditional handicrafts and dishes drew the great attention of visitors. Typical products were lacquer and Dong Ho paintings, ao dai (long dress), palm-leaf conical hats, Pho (noodles served with beef or chicken), and coffee.
In addition, the Vietnamese Embassy coordinated with the Hanoi Trade Corporation (Hapro), the Trung Nguyen Legend Group and the Dakmark Food Joint Stock Company to display Vietnam’s agricultural products such as bean and instant coffee, tea, rice, pepper and cashew nuts.
The bazaar is an annual activity hosted by the DMEDD for foreign diplomatic corps, organizations and businesses to introduce and sell their countries’ handicrafts and packaged food.
All the proceeds from the event are used to support poor children in Turkey.
