(VEN) - The 2021-2025 national industry promotion program, approved by the prime minister at the end of 2020, has become increasingly efficient, helping mobilize and effectively use all resources, creating a new driving force for industrial and handicraft growth, and contributing to new rural area development and economic restructuring.


Ngo Quang Trung, Director of the Ministry of Industry and Trade’s Agency for Regional Industry and Trade (ARIT), says the industry promotion sector has gradually become a vital resource for rural industrial establishments. With a wide variety of support activities, the sector has created extensive connections for rural industrial establishments and strong industries of specific regions and localities.

With assistance for building technical demonstration models, technology transfer and advanced machinery application, industry promotion programs have contributed to rural industrial development.

Activities such as honoring outstanding rural industrial products, organizing trade fairs and exhibitions, and assisting rural industrial establishments to develop branding, register trademarks and open showrooms to introduce and promote products all help improve product quality and design and form supply chains.

“Industry promotion activities vary, including many new activities, all compliant with the needs of rural industrial establishments. The scale, quality, implementation and management of industry promotion projects have been gradually improved,” Trung said.
