Specifically, 100 percent of commodities sold at the Vinatext Mart are made locally. The percentage at Saigon Coop Mart and Big C supermarkets are 93 percent and 90 percent, respectively.
Nearly 80 percent of goods sold in rural areas originate in Vietnam.
The municipal Department of Industry and Trade has launched a number of programmes to promote Vietnamese products at supermarkets and trade centres.
It also created a portal to manage e-commerce activities and encourage e-commerce businesses to sell locally-made products.
The campaigns have received a warm response from business players who proactively invest and apply new cutting-edge science and technology to cut production costs and improve product quality.
Moving forward, Hanoi will develop trade, stabilise the market and bring more Vietnamese goods to rural and remote areas as well as industrial and processing parks.
Market management staff will continue to control product prices and prevent low-quality or counterfeit commodities./.
