Chile has selected Ho Chi Minh City as a venue for introducing its claret as part of the country’s promotion programme in Asia.

Chile ’s Trade Commission (ProChile) has also enlisted Hong Kong, Taipei, Shanghai, Seoul and Tokyo as other destinations during the programme scheduled for between May 18 and June 1.

According to the International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV), Chile ranked eighth among the world’s leading wine producers, with its output reaching 8.6 million hectoliters last year.

The country is now the largest wine exporter in Latin American and the fifth largest in the world with 5.8 million hectoliters.

In 2008, Ho Chi Minh City was one of the Asian places hosting the Chilean Week to boost two-way trade and investment as well as promoting the image of the South American country in this continent.
