Annually, the agencies and units take many measures to boost spreading of the campaign.
There is good news from the Vietnamese goods market this Tet occasion that the domestic production facilities and suppliers pay more attention to consumers’ demands to provide products suitable for Vietnamese people’s tastes and trusted by consumers.
“Suppliers will continue selling imported goods when consumers still prefer to buy foreign-made commodities. As people pay attention to using domestic products, producers and traders must meet their reasonable demands”, stressed Hoang Viet Bach.
