This is my first time in THAIFEX – Anuga Asia. It’s a well-organized show with many innovative products at the showground. As a hosted buyer, I’m very satisfied with the number of international business contacts that I’ve gathered in the past few days. I know it will translate to revenue growth for my company in the coming days.
