The working session between Long An Department of Industry and Trade and Ho Chi Minh City Department of Industry and Trade
Mr. Le Duc Minh said that over the past time, Long An has connected the supply and demand very closely with Ho Chi Minh City. Long An has well implemented the regulations on preliminary processing at source, providing safe agricultural products for Ho Chi Minh City market.
However, the connection of goods consumption still has some limitations. Some enterprises and cooperatives signed memoranda of understanding at supply and demand connection conference but it is difficult to implement commercial contracts. There are still cases that agricultural products certified by Long An province as safe agricultural, forestry and fishery food supply chains but difficult to access business establishments in Ho Chi Minh City.
At the meeting, would like Ho Chi Minh City Department of Industry and Trade to promote connection activities, support the province in agricultural products consumption, implement the signed memoranda of understanding; facilitating goods of Long An to reach consumers in Ho Chi Minh City through direct distribution channels to reduce cost. In particular, in addition to safe vegetables, Long An wishes to connect the supply products to Ho Chi Minh City such as beef, seafood, and other processed products.
Noting the recommendations of Long An, Deputy Director of Ho Chi Minh City Department of Industry and Trade – Nguyen Huynh Trang said that he would continue act as a focal point to closely coordinate with Long An as well as other provinces and cities to provide maximum support for enterprises, cooperatives to promote and expand markets. In particular, Ho Chi Minh City would prioritize the consumption of goods with high quality, reasonable price, typical products and specialties./.
