Chairman of the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee Nguyen Thien Nhan has called for more actions to boost the use of locally made goods in Vietnam.

The chairman made the call while addressing a meeting to implement the 2014 plans of the campaign “Vietnamese people prioritise the use of Vietnamese goods” in Hanoi on February 18.

Chairman Nhan, who is also the head of the campaign steering committee, said more people are satisfied with the quality of goods manufactured in Vietnam, thanks to the effective operation of the campaign.

He asked relevant agencies to work together to spread information about locally made goods to Vietnamese people both at home and abroad, while honouring organisations and individuals contributing to the campaign.

In the meantime, local authorities were asked to encourage the use of goods produced locally and create more incentives to back enterprises active in the field.

2013 is the fourth year of the campaign, which has improved the quality and competitiveness of locally made products, winning the support of consumers.

This year the campaign will focus on bettering the quality of products as well as further promoting Vietnam’s trademark in the global market.-VNA
