Made-in-Vietnam goods win local favour

Locally-made products have won consumers’ tastes thanks to the five-year-old “Vietnamese prioritise Vietnamese goods” campaign.

The provincial and municipal departments of industry and trade have actively organised trade fairs and exhibitions across the country to popularise Vietnamese goods, especially among locals in the remote areas, said deputy head of the Domestic Market Department Le Viet Nga at a conference in Hanoi on July 3.

Such events have seen more than 53,000 businesses showcasing their products at 48,000 pavilions, drawing over 3 million residents as well as large crowds from neighbouring countries such as Laos and Cambodia, Nga added.
