We also have a chance to work with Mrs. Vo Ngoc Diep – Counselor of Commerce of Vietnam Embassy in Myanmar and got many encourages to export cinnamon sedge slippers and look for distributors to distribute our products in Myanmar market. She talks and share that Myanmar people love to use Vietnamese products and this is an advantage and good feedback for Vietnam companies, especially for our company. Myanmar people doesn’t like Chinese products and they prefer to use Vietnamese products than Thai products since they have conflict border between Thailand and Myanmar in history.

When we came to this fairs and doing market research, we realized we have big potential market for the cinnamon slippers in Myanmar. There are nearly 90% people wearing slippers indoor and outdoor and they prefer to wear slipper/ sandals every where in the country. Moreover, cinnamon sedge slippers are good for health and environmentally friendly – this is the new trend of society. People are generally changing to choose nice and good quality products, safe, good for their health and their families.
