The move aims to introduce Vietnamese firms to foreign investors and partners, thus helping them expand their export markets.

The list has been selected from nominations by ministries, sectors, the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry, industry associations, and departments of industry and trades of cities and provinces.

The nominees must satisfy several standards in terms of export revenue, product quality, reputation among foreign partners, compliance with tax, customs, and environment regulations.

Submissions must be sent to the MoIT’s headquarters at 54 Hai Ba Trung street, Hoan Kiem district in Hanoi no later than April 30, 2020.

In 2019, the country's export turnover reached US$ 264.2 billion, an increase of 8.4% over 2018, exceeding the targets set by the National Assembly and the Government. The results were significantly bolstered by efforts made by the business community to raise competitiveness and diversify their export markets.
