NDO - A trade promotion fair for cooperatives opened at Thong Nhat Park in Hanoi on May 18.

Organised by the Vietnam Cooperative Alliance (VCA), the event attracted the participation of 200 booths from nearly 300 cooperatives from 25 provinces and cities across the country.

The fair aims to promote and introduce the products, goods, and services of the cooperatives and respond to the “Vietnamese people prioritise using Vietnamese goods” campaign.

It is also expected to create an opportunity for trade cooperatives to exchange experiences, and business and investment opportunities, and to sign new contracts.

A similar event will also be held in Ho Chi Minh City from December 20-24.

Vietnam is currently home to more than 22,400 cooperatives totalling 7 million members. Of this, 13,000 cooperatives are in agriculture.

Farmers are encouraged to join in cooperatives to develop their products and raise competitiveness in the market, ensuring sustainable production.
