Minister of Industry and Trade Vu Huy Hoang has approved the 2nd phase of the 2012 national trade promotion programme worth nearly VND35.5 billion.
The promotions will be targeted at export-oriented trade, and the domestic market, as well as trade activities in mountains, borders, and islands with priority to be given to big national plans.
For export-oriented trade, the programme will continue focusing on Vietnam’s participation in domestic and overseas trade expos, attracting foreign enterprises to explore the Vietnamese market, holding international conferences on export products in Vietnam, and training staff in charge of trade promotion.
The Ministry has so far approved two phases of the national trade promotion programme for this year, with a total of 90 schemes involved and costing VND79.4 billion.
It will cooperate with relevant ministries, agencies, and craft associations to work on the third phase of the programme this year.
