Director of the municipal Department of Agricultural and Rural Development Chu Phu My announced the plan at a conference taking stock of the OCOP program in 2020 on December 25.
To date, Hanoi has completed a similar process for 630 OCOP products achieving 3-star rating and above, exceeding the target of having at least 500 OCOP products.
Along with the development of OCOP products, Hanoi has launched 13 OCOP showrooms in the city and organized four OCOP trade promotion events for products from northern mountainous, Red river delta, central highlands, and southern region.
Vice Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Nguyen Manh Quyen said in the coming time, the city will continue to push for greater efficiency in the implementation of the OCOP program.
“Hanoi is expected to continue cooperating with other provinces/cities in promoting trade and taking the OCOP products from all over Vietnam to distribution channels,” he noted.
From December 25–27, Hanoi will launch an exhibition fair to showcase OCOP products at the Cultural Friendship Palace, located at 91 Tran Hung Dao street, Hoan Kiem district.
The OCOP program, with a view to honoring prominent craft villages’ goods and products, has been identified by Hanoi’s authorities as one of the solutions to boost domestic consumption at a time when the Covid-19 pandemic is causing severe consequences on the local economy.
