Hanoi (VNA) - Big C supermarket has received the 2015 Golden Dragon Award and Vietnamese Excellent Brand Award for its outstanding performance at a recent ceremony in Hanoi.

It was for the eighth consecutive year that it won the two awards.

Despite the economic situation last year, it managed to achieve satisfactory sales and opened two new stores to raise its total number to 33.

It also ran programmes to help small- and medium-sized suppliers, gave gifts to needy people during Tet (lunar new year) and International Children's Day, and undertook other charity others.

The supermarket exported more than 27 million USD worth of Vietnamese goods to over 20 countries and territories where Casino Group, its parent company, operates.

This year it will work with the Ministry of Industry and Trade and Casino Group to organise a Vietnamese Goods Week in France to promote Vietnamese goods internationally.

Given away by the Vietnam Economic Times and the Foreign Investment Agency since 2001, the Golden Dragon awards recognise the achievements of foreign-invested companies with respect to business performance, contributions to the development of Vietnam's economy, and investment and foreign trade.-VNA
