Top Thai Brands 2017, an annual fair of Thai branded products, began yesterday at Koh Pich Convention and Exhibition in Phnom Penh.

The five-day event was organised by the Department of International Trade Promotion, Ministry of Commerce of Thailand and the Royal Thai Embassy in Phnom Penh, in cooperation with Cambodia's Ministry of Commerce.

About 220 leading companies are displaying their high quality products, ranging from food and beverage, clothes, shoes to household appliances, kitchenware, and electronic device on a total of 300 booths.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Thai Ambassador to Cambodia H.E. Nuttavudh Photisaro said the expo will contribute to boosting the trade and investment between Cambodia and Thailand to reach US$20 billion by 2020 as targeted by the leaders of both countries.
