The northern mountain province of Thai Nguyen has completed preparations for the first international tea festival which are scheduled to take place from November 11-15, says a provincial official.

A press centre equipped with modern facilities and Internet-connected computers has been set up to support local and foreign reporters, Ma Thi Nguyet, Vice Chairwoman of the provincial People’s Committee, told a press briefing on November 3.

Art performances, a Carnival show and trade promotion activities will be held throughout the festival, said Nguyet.

Some Vietnamese records will be set up at the event, including the biggest tea port, the most favourite tea product, and a tea drinking night with the participation of the largest number of connoisseurs at August 20 Square.

Seven countries have registered to participate in the festival, namely China, India, Russia, Japan, Sri Lanka, Laos and the Republic of Korea, which are importing Vietnamese tea products.

An international workshop featuring the Vietnamese tea in the integration process will also be held. (Source: VOV)
