The Investment and Trade Promotions Centre (ITPC) in HCM City has announced this year’s export promotion campaigns in seven key markets, namely the US, Europe, Japan, Cambodia, Myanmar, China and Laos.
The centre will also organize trips for businesses to visit exhibitions and fairs and conduct surveys in Indonesia and the Philippines.
The city’s competitive export staples are footwear, garment and textiles and processed seafood, which are expected to make up 35 percent of its total export revenues over the next five years.
ITPC will also set up a database of information on export businesses and their products and organize a series of business meeting for domestic enterprises to meet foreign partners in the food, furniture, handicraft, interior decoration, electricity-electronics, textiles and garments and footwear sectors.
The city will strengthen ties with several localities to help businesses access the latest market information by way of cooperating with international promoters and Vietnamese trade councils, consuls and embassies.
This year, the city plans to hold 12 meetings with state management agencies in its districts to improve production and business operations. In addition, ITPC will hold more trade fairs in suburban areas, industrial parks and export processing zones to promote the domestic consumption of Vietnamese goods.
