Ninh Binh (VNA) – The Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT) held a workshop in the northern province of Ninh Binh on October 6 to seek broader links between trade sectors in 28 northern cities and provinces.

The event reviewed the industrial production outcomes in 2015 and the first nine months of 2016.

The municipal and provincial Departments of Industry and Trade shared experience in the State management in the field and proposed measures to embrace their links to optimise potential and strengths in each locality.

Participants asked the MoIT and the People’s Committees to remove difficulties for businesses, develop production for economic growth and ensure social welfares.

They discussed various issues such as the connection of farm produce markets, the efficiency of policy to develop industrial clusters, and the promotion of trade links in 2016 and the following years.

Insiders suggested the State build proper mechanisms and policies to develop handicraft and small industry and craft village industry, as well as attract businesses to invest in industrial clusters under the public-private partnership (PPP) model.

In the coming time, the industry and trade sectors in 28 cities and provinces in the north will help businesses maximise their manufacturing capacity, enhance State management in environmental protection at industrial parks, and ensure electricity in rural areas.

Relevant agencies will continue to promote communication campaigns to raise public awareness of international integration, protection of customers’ rights, and e-commerce, while forging connectivity among joint ventures, businesses and foreign partners.-VNA
