The Vietnam – Turkey B2B Matching Webinar on Packaging Products 2020, co-organised by the Vietnam Trade Promotion Agency (Vietrade), the Vietnam Trade Office in Turkey, and the Vietnam Packaging Association (VIPAS), took place on December 16.
Speaking at the event, deputy head of Vietrade Le Hoang Tai stated Turkey is always a top partner of Vietnam in the Middle East.
He said with a highly skilled workforce, abundant supplies of materials and experience in working with demanding markets like the US, the EU, and Japan, Vietnamese packaging producers are able to meet demand of buyers.
Omer Gurkok, purchasing manager at the Turkish industrial and services group Arcelik, advised Vietnamese firms to pay attention to environmental protection, social responsibility, and sustainable development if they seek partnership with Arcelik.
VIPAS General Secretary Luong Thi Thuy Ngan affirmed Vietnam is capable of producing packaging products for Turkish importers, adding that the local packaging sector grows an annual average of between 15 and 20 percent.
Right after the conference, Vietnamese packaging producers and exporters joined virtual B2B sessions with Arcelik’s subsidiaries.
