EU-Vietnam Business Network (EVBN) organises the 4th edition of the Food & Beverage Trade Mission to Vietnam, which is going to be held in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi from the 30th January to the 2nd February. The mission consists of 19 European companies that are visiting Vietnam to explore potential and fruitful partnerships with local importers and distributors.

This year’s trade mission will be attended by European companies from Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Portugal and the United Kingdom. During the information session in Ho Chi Minh City, European companies will be presented with the existing growth potential of Vietnam’s food and beverage industry, financial benefits that will derive from the soon-to-be-implemented EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement and explained about how to import European products to Vietnam. More than 230 B2B meetings with Vietnamese distributors and importers based in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, as well as business visits to supermarkets and shopping malls will follow over the 4-day event.

EVBN is a project co-funded by the European Union, which aims to strengthen European business activities in Vietnam, with a special focus on European small and medium-sized companies (SMEs) seeking cooperation opportunities in Vietnam. Since 2015, the last three editions of EVBN’s Food & Beverage Trade Mission have welcomed 62 European companies and made several successful partnerships happen.
