With more than 145 year years of history, Bia Saigon is the oldest beverage in the Vietnamese market. Beer Saigon is not only a symbol of cultural values, but also the pride of Vietnamese worldwide and has been voted as the 'National Brand' for consecutive years.
The unique taste of Saigon Beer has an inspiring taste and is an indispensable part of everyday life in Vietnam. Bia Saigon has eight products: the Saigon Lager 450 bottle, Saigon Export Beer bottle, Saigon Special bottle, Saigon Lager 355 bottle, 333 Premium, 333 beer can, Saigon Special can, and Saigon Lager can.
Saigon Beer and Beer 333 are Vietnam's leading beers and are on the way to conquering markets such as Germany, the US, Japan, and the Netherlands.
This is Blinken's first visit to Vietnam as a secretary of state. He also visited Vietnam in 2015 and 2016 as deputy secretary of state under the Obama administration.
Blinken met with the leader of Vietnam's Communist Party and other top officials during his official visit. He left Vietnam on Sunday to travel to Japan and participate in the G7 Foreign Ministers' Meeting.
