Hanoi (VNA) –
As many as 85 products were honoured with Vietnam Gold Farming Brand in Hanoi on June 30.

Chairman of the General Council of Agriculture and Rural Development Ho Xuan Hung said the winning products were selected from nearly 400 agri-products across the country.

The council had closely worked with the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, Department of Industry and Trade, and Associations of Farmers in cities and provinces nationwide for four months to examine the products.

The programme also raised awareness of businesses and farmers about the importance of building and developing brands in business production activities to look towards sustainable exports of agricultural products, Hung said.

He revealed that many small-and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) registered for the gold brand this year.-VNA
