NDO – A workshop, aiming to discuss solutions to connect the market for regional specific products, promote the consumption of agricultural products and safe food in 2019, took place in Hanoi, on September 26.

Co-organised by the Department of Domestic Market, the Vietnam Industry and Trade Information Centre (under the Ministry of Industry and Trade) and the Agricultural Trade Promotion Centre (under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development), the workshop also aims to share experiences and difficulties in the process of developing regional specific products; supporting policies from the State management agencies in recent times.

At the workshop attendees had the chance to learn and discuss about demands of the market on regional specific products; a number of measures to develop specialty brands for Vietnam; connect businesses, production households and cooperatives to distribute regional products with partners and create distribution chains.

At the seminar, the logistics and linkage issues were also discussed by the delegates. Accordingly, the production units should link together to use the same service to save the costs. It is necessary to establish the "Alliance of safe food suppliers" to create a healthy competitive strength that is also recommended by experts here.

As part of the workshop, a ceremony, connecting consumption of safe agricultural products and foodstuffs among businesses, was held.
