The second Vietnam Tea Outlook 2010 will be held in Hanoi on July 29-30, drawing the participation of many scientists, socialists and businesses from 20 countries.
The information was released at a press briefing hosted by the Vietnam Tea Association (Vietnam Tea) in the capital city on July 26.
The event aims to promote Vietnam’s potential for tea growing, producing and processing and its tea trading and export activities.
During the programme, participants will make a fact-finding tour of tea growing, producing and processing areas in the northern province of Phu Tho and attend a seminar on tea development policies and competition between tea and other crops.
They will have a chance to study tea consumption demands in several markets, the real situation of Vietnam’s tea customers, the country’s investment attraction and international certificates on tea quality management.
On the occasion, Vietnam Tea will introduce the country’s 10 leading tea producers and admit new members. Vietnam’s tea products are now present in 118 countries and territories worldwide, ranking fifth in the world in term of export volume.
