A market selling Vietnamese products and safe farm produce was held in Ho Chi Minh City for the first time on September 12-13 to facilitate linkages between local businesses.

The event was jointly organised by the Business Association of High-Quality Vietnamese Goods and the Business Research and Support Agency (BSA).

The market provided a chance for both retailers and customers to get their hands on local specialties such as Dong Thap simmered fish, Ninh Thuan grapefruits, and Ben Tre coconuts.

Alongside farm produce, high-quality Vietnamese products such as Tam Lan tea, Tan Quang Minh soft drink, Vinh Thuan flour, and SG Anpha swallow’s nest were available at the market.

President of the Business Association of High-Quality Vietnamese Goods Vu Kim Hanh said the fair is one of the activities to help local businesses access the market and set up links between producers and retailers in the city.

It also helps the business community build strategy to expand the distribution network, seek distributors and get feedbacks from customers, thus securing their market share and increasing competitiveness in the domestic market, she added.-VNA
