Hanoi (VNA) - The Ministry of Industry and Trade has officially announced a list of 310 Vietnamese prestigious exporters for 2015, aimed at supporting local firms in promoting exports and expanding markets.

The ministry last week promulgated a decision to approve the list of local prestigious exporters for 2015.

The vote was held in co-ordination with the provincial departments of industry and trade, other ministries, sectors, associations and relevant agencies after publishing the list of exporters on the ministry’s website for selection.

The list of exporters was chosen based on the proposals of relevant agencies, along with the ministry’s criteria of maximum export turnover, prestige with foreign partners and duties to the tax and customs sector.

Notably, the ministry has given priority in choosing sectors in which the country has encouraged exports as well as those facing difficulties in finding export markets.

The ministry’s Import-Export Department said the vote aimed to recognise exporters’ positive contributions to the country’s export growth while giving them support in seeking markets.

It also aimed to encourage Vietnamese exporters to further improve their image towards international integration with the world economy.

The chosen exporters will be permitted to advertise their products for free on the ministry’s website and its newspapers and magazines.

They will be given priority in participating in national trade promotion programmes and receive free training courses on e-commerce. The ministry will also directly introduce the list to foreign partners.

The exporters were chosen from 22 sectors, including seafood, rice, rubber and coffee, as well as garment and textile.

Some of the names on the list are Intimex Group, Viet Phu Thinh Rubber Joint Stock Company, Tan Phong and Nha Be Corporation, as wel as Viet Tien Garment and Textile Company, and B.Braun Vietnam.-VNA
