Thailand
Under the supervision of the Thai Prime Minister, OSMEP is a major policymaker to support SMEs in Thailand and also incubate and train startups and SMEs. We also provide financial support and advice to SMEs and help them to develop international business networks. This is the second year that we have set up the Thailand Pavilion at the Hong Kong Houseware Fair. The fair provides the perfect platform for Thai companies to develop international markets. Thai exhibitors closed more than 100 deals through last year’s Houseware Fair. At this year’s fair, we have brought together 20 companies which provide good and creative products such as UV-resistant, antibacterial and eco-friendly textiles, herbal products, spa products, celadon products, and skincare products made from organic materials. Their creative products attract a lot of interest from international buyers.

Buyers’ Quotes

Progress Distribution
Germany
Progress Distribution is a distributor of branded products, with clients not only from Germany but also from other EU countries. I have visited the Hong Kong Houseware Fair for several times. To meet the needs of our customers, I am particularly looking for pet supplies and green products. Pet supplies are in great demand as people like to keep pets more than children. Consumers in EU countries prefer household products which are made from non-plastic materials. At the fair, I have found two potential suppliers of smart bowls and biodegradable paper bags and backpacks through the HKTDC’s business matching service. The Hong Kong Houseware Fair is a specialised trade fair with lots of good and innovative products. I like it very much.
