Hanoi (VNA) – The first e-market for Vietnam’s agricultural, forestry, and fishery products called AGROMART was launched in Hanoi on December 22 by the Agricultural Trade Promotion Centre under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.

Via the site, AGROMART helps consumers select safer and certified products with clear origin, said Nguyen Nhu Tiep, Director of the Agro-Forestry-Fisheries Quality Assurance Department (NAFIQAD).

It serves as a bridge for domestic and foreign enterprises to exchange technologies and services in the agricultural field while marketing their products to customers, said Dao Van Ho, Director of the Agricultural Trade Promotion Centre

Thanks to the e-market, managers can build development strategies and make market forecasts while businesses can grasp consumers’ tastes and market information, he added.

More than 3,000 produces from 1,000 participating members are expected to join AGROMART, which is linked with well-known e-markets inside and outside the country in order to help enterprises quickly access this potential business method and thus increase their competitiveness in the integration context.

A cooperation agreement between the centre and the agriculture and rural developments of provinces and cities, and associations was inked at the launch ceremony.-VNA
