Over 300 business people participated in the event to meet and hold discussions with many well-known American companies. A number of officials spoke at the Supplier Day event including Vietnam Trade Promotion Agency Director General Vu Ba Phu, VCCI Vice Chairman Doan Duy Khuong, the CEO of the Private Sector Development Committee Nguyen Duc Tung, and US Ambassador to Vietnam Daniel J. Kritenbrink. Supplier Day included an exhibition fair, networking and meeting opportunities, plus interesting presentations on topics useful to both large and small businesses. The event helped facilitate supplier-buyer relationships between Vietnamese small and medium enterprises and foreign firms and integrate Vietnamese small and medium-sized businesses into global supply chains. This is the first time that such an event has been organized in Hanoi. The organizers thank USAID, Coca Cola and Polaris for supporting the event.
