The event also draws attention of many partners from Canada, the US, Japan and the Republic of Korea.

There will be the seminar “Vietnamese handicraft products – Values and potentials’’ where the municipal authority’s investment policies and incentives are presented.

An important activity of the Week is to facilitate direct contacts among enterprises and open field trips to craft villages. According to the Organizing Board, such tours will help enterprises to find out partners.
