Although exporting in the country generally and in Ho
Chi Minh City particularly is increasing, it has to cope with difficulties and
challenges from the world economic situation, trade barrier and fierce
competition from foreign products. These impacts cause many obstacles for
enterprises to improve production as well as export sales.

Hence, supporting market seeking and information
provision for enterprises to expand exporting is a vital mission in economic –
social development of the city.

Enterprises are still in need of new information about
foreign markets and regions in the world in order to orient annual production
and business, as well as plan exporting strategy for potential markets.

Annual Export Forum held by Investment and Trade
Promotion HCMC (ITPC) in previous years was contributing to open up new
orientations towards goods and service exporting for enterprises. Export Forum
2014 also concentrates on solutions to assist enterprises exporting accordant
with the trend of export product and potential market in the period of 2015 –
2020 and governmental strategy to 2030.

Especially in 2014, Ho Chi Minh City People’s
Committee targets the task of economy – culture – society development in 2014,
especially concentrating resources to boost industries, industrial products,
services with highly concentrated science – technology, high value-added,
high-tech agriculture, and ecological agriculture in particular. This aims to
put forward solutions and enhance exporting in Ho Chi Minh City particularly
and in area generally.

Thus, Export Forum 2014 organized by ITPC is expected
to open up new solution with the intention of maximizing export value,
expanding new market, connecting enterprises in Ho Chi Minh City and
neighbouring provinces with partners.

Following the successful Export Forum 2013, Export Forum 2014 with topic “Orienting
Market and Export Product”
will be one of practical and supportive
activities for domestic enterprises to tackle difficulties for the time being.
