The 21st Asia Trade Promotion Forum (ATPF) will be held in Hanoi from April 3-4. This is the first time for Vietnam to host this forum since the country joined the organisation in 2001.
This year, the forum is themed â€œChallenges to Trade Promotion Organisations (TPOs): Serving the Business Community More Professionally and Effectively.â€
The participants will focus their discussions on two topics â€“ â€œUnderstanding TPOâ€™s customersâ€ and â€œServing the Business Community in the Era of Internationalisation.â€
The 21st ATPF creates a good opportunity for Vietnamâ€™s TPOs to share experiences with other ATPF members and receive their support in order to promote trade, tourism and investment co-operation in Vietnam.
AFPF was founded in 1987 with the participation of IPOs of economies in Asia in order to promote development of trade, tourism, creating a transparent investment environment and supporting enterprises in the region to boost exports.
ATPF currently has 21 members. The Ministry of Industry and Tradeâ€™s Trade Promotion Centre (Vietrade) represents Vietnam in ATPF.
