Tan said that other products may include coffee, handicrafts and wood sculpture works.

Moreover, as Vietnam is celebrating the 1000th anniversary of the establishment of its capital city of Hanoi this year, the introduction about the peculiarities of Hanoi will also be a focus, said Tan. At the same time, Hanoi, in its development as an urban city, is facing with a lot of environmental issues that need to be addressed to become a better city.

"We expect to see a large number of people including both Vietnamese and foreigners visit Vietnam's national pavilion at the exhibition," said the chief representative.

Vietnam considers this time's expo special as it is held in China, a country which has a traditional relationship with Vietnam and this year marks the 60th anniversary of Vietnam-China diplomatic relations.

Vietnam has made careful preparations for the expo in Shanghai, said Tan.

Particularly, as bamboo is a material which is easy to catch fires, Vietnam has cooperated with a Chinese company to produce a fire-resistant chemical only for bamboos for the first time ever, according to Tan.

Vietnam hopes to have the coordination from the expo organizer in security issues to protect our national pavilion at the upcoming Shanghai World Expo, said the chief representative.
