Cutting ribbon to open the exhibition 

The event, held by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development in coordination with the Ministry of Health, is considered a venue for buying traditional medicines to serve the shopping and health care needs of people in Hanoi and nearby localities.

Deputy Minister of Health Truong Quoc Cuong said that activities at the fair would contribute to raising the awareness and responsibility of consumers as well as producers for traditional medicinal and pharmaceutical products, and encourage organisations and enterprises to invest in developing the production and value chains of high quality medicinal products.
