Hanoi (VNS/VNA) - The People’s Committee of Hanoi on April 23 issued plans on organising activities to connect production and distribution of goods between Hanoi and other provinces and cities nationwide by year-end.

These activities are aimed at strengthening regional links and supporting consumption of goods and agricultural products to ensure supply for the capital city.

Accordingly, in the last two quarters of this year, Hanoi will organise delegations of municipal officials and businesses to many provinces and cities nationwide to enhance trade promotion activities.

They include Bac Giang, Hung Yen, Lao Cai, Quang Ninh, Son La, Hoa Binh, Nam Dinh, Bac Kan, Yen Bai, Ha Giang, Lang Son, Long An, Ben Tre, Can Tho and An Giang.

Hanoi and those provinces and cities will open conferences and goods trading activities to display products and sign contracts and memoranda of understanding. Those will help Hanoi to have increased supply of goods, meeting the city’s demand.

At the same time, the city will organise delegations of Hanoi’s businesses to join the programme on cooperation and support to connect consumption of agricultural products and goods with economic regions. It expects to implement this programme in Ninh Thuan province or Lam Dong province in the central and central highlands region and Tra Vinh province in the southern region.

In Hanoi, the city will organise weeks for fruits and agricultural products of provinces and cities to support localities facing difficulties in consumption and export. Those weeks will introduce farming produce of other provinces and cities to the capital city’s consumers.

In addition, Hanoi will support provinces and cities nationwide in opening their weeks for fruit and agricultural products in the capital city.

Those activities are expected to support businesses, cooperatives and farmers in Hanoi and other provinces and cities in following supply and demand of the market to have flexible production and business plans and ensure the balance of supply and demand.

At the same time, they will support businesses and cooperatives to promote brands and products in the domestic market and to export goods to foreign markets via distribution systems of foreign firms in Vietnam, such as Central Group, Aeon and Lotte./.
