HCMC – HCMC and 20 southern provinces will join hands in diverse activities relating to trade and services for the 2011-2015 period, according to cooperation agreements signed in the city on Monday.

The city’s Department of Industry and Trade signed separate agreements with counterparts from 13 Mekong Delta provinces and seven southeast provinces under the witness of Deputy Prime Minister Vu Van Ninh.

Accordingly, the localities will organize goods exchange activities, jointly regulate supply and demand on the market, and create and exploit material sources. Besides, related provinces and cities will join forces in consumer protection, market inspection and control, fighting illegal products and ensuring food safety.

Vice Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Hong of the HCMC government said the comprehensive cooperation in trade and services was aimed to tap the advantages of southern localities and efficiently utilize the region’s potentials. Moreover, the cooperation will facilitate investment in trade and service projects.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, Deputy Prime Minister Vu Van Ninh urged related parties to bring out policies and mechanisms to facilitate the cooperation between enterprises and localities. Moreover, regional planning should be attached to economic sector planning, creating the regional and national value chains.

In related development, HCMC-based Saigon Trading Group (Satra) and Vissan Company on Monday signed a cooperation agreement in animal husbandry and farm produce consumption with Dong Nai Food Industrial Corporation (Dofico) and France-Vietnam Joint Stock Company (Proconco) in Dong Nai.
