All the trips have been effective, she said, stressing that positive and constructive comments from partners have helped the cooperative improve its products.

More than 50 products for export as well as products with high potential for export, as well as OCOP and typical products of Yen Bai were introduced at the event, drawing the attention of more than 5,000 visitors and 50 Chinese firms.
The products, including Hoang Lien Son technical porcelain, cinnamon, cinnamon essential oil, cinnamon tea, vermicelli, Bat Do bamboo shoots, Shan Tuyet Suoi Giang tea, plastic cladding products, coloured tiles, cassava starch products, and planted forest wood products, drew great attention of Chinese consumers and businesses. A number of Chinese firms also showed their interest in exploring Yen Bai's specialty products and export products.
