More than 200 contemporary ceramic works and other products under the One Commune One Product (OCOP) program as well as handicrafts by Hanoi artisans, skilled workers, and designers are on display at an exhibition to introduce typical rural industry items of the capital city in 2021.

Speaking at the opening event held last week, Tran Thi Phuong Lan, Acting Director of the Hanoi Department of Industry and Trade said the exhibitions like this one will create opportunities for Hanoi artisans and craft villages to promote and sell handicraft and OCOP-labeled products to domestic and international clients, as well as preserve the value of traditional handicraft products.

Thereby it is expected to boost production and business activities, contributing to the recovery and development of the economy in the new normal, she said.

This was the first event in a series of exhibitions to be organized by the Hanoi Department of Industry and Trade.

Lan said the Department of Industry and Trade also requested businesses and households, as well as those under OCOP to join its Center for Industrial Promotion and Consultancy, to further disseminate the historical and cultural values of their products online and in-person and in this way boost the consumption of rural products of Hanoi in Vietnam and abroad.  

Earlier, Hanoi also held a program with the participation of 50 business households on sustainable production and consumption on December 3 in Thuong Tin District.

Traditional craft villages participating in the program were required to meet nine criteria in each stage of production, processing, and completion of a product and its distribution.

The activity aimed to implement the National Action Plan on Sustainable Production and Consumption in Hanoi in 2021.
