Vietnam to attend Trade Expo Indonesia 2015

Vietnam is attending the 30th Trade Expo Indonesia 2015 in Jakarta from October 21 to 25.
 The annual event attracts domestic and international enterprises seeking investment opportunities, information exchanges and a way to introduce their products to partners across the world.
 The Vietnam booth will disseminate Vietnamese enterprises’ images and products to foreign partners.
 The 2014 expo drew participation from more than 10,000 visitors from 100 countries and territories, with trade transactions coming to a total of more than 1 billion USD.
 The Indonesian government introduced several measures to stimulate the economy, attract investment and bolster ASEAN economic growth.
 Finance Minister Bambang Briidjonegoro said the government expects the economy to enjoy faster growth in the third quarter of this year due to an increase in the government’s investment and expenditures.
 Accordingly, Indonesia’s gross domestic product (GDP) is expected to grow 4.8 to 5 percent in the third quarter of 2015, higher than last year’s third quarter growth of 4.67 percent.-VNA (151022)
