According to the steering committee for the campaign, 2016 saw significant changes in consumers’ awareness of giving priority to the use of Vietnamese goods as a way to show patriotism, self-help for self-improvement and national self-respect.

Enterprises strongly invested in producing quality products with diversified models and building and developing trademarks. The distribution network in Ho Chi Minh city gave strength to enterprises to bring about 80-90% of Vietnamese goods on the shelves. 

Currently, the city’s Vietnamese goods distribution system covers 40 trade centres, 193 supermarkets, 240 traditional markets and 890 stores.

Besides the results, the campaign also showed shortcomings as some enterprises did not bravely invest in upgrading the quality of products, so the quality, model and prices of some products have not satisfied the taste and requirement of consumers.

On this occasion, the steering committee presented certificates of merit from the Chairperson of the city People’s Committee to 39 groups for their outstanding performance in the 2016 campaign./.
