Cultural Coffee Weeks to promote Vietnamese coffee


Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City will hold Cultural Coffee Weeks this December to promote Vietnamese coffee, which has become increasingly popular on foreign markets.

Ly Thanh Tung, director of the Commerce and Tourism Department in the Central Highlands province of Daklak, said the coffee weeks would showcase the history Vietnam’s high-yield beans, display farm models and demonstrate harvesting and processing techniques.

Organized by Daklak provincial People’s Committee and sponsored by Vietnam’s leading coffee company Trung Nguyen, the event is an opportunity for some 20 coffee companies to cooperate in promoting their products.

Daklak is the country’s leading coffee producing province with a yield of some 400,000 tons per year.
