By the sector’s statistic, by now, the city has 42 trade centers, 201 supermarkets, and 240 traditional markets. The sector spends more on these distributing channels of Vietnamese commodities including repairing facilities and improving quality especially in outlying districts.
Through the campaign, Vietnamese commodities account for 90 - 100 percent in these centers, supermarkets and markets; for instance, the rate of Vietnamese goods in supermarket chain Big C is 95 percent, in SatraMart at 95 percent and in Giant at 100 percent.
For the subsidized commodity program, in addition to uniting between companies, enterprises have opened more stores. So far, the city has 10,602 outlets to sell subsidized goods in suburban districts and in the premises of industrial parks and export processing zones.
In a bid to help residents in suburbs and laborers in industrial parks to buy subsidized goods, the Department of Industry and Trade has set up three mobile groups to sell Vietnamese commodities with cheap prices.
In the first six months of this year, Saigon Co.op, Satra and Ba Huan Company launched 602 mobile goods-carrying trips to suburban districts such as Can Gio, Cu Chi and Hoc Mon. Apart from this, Saigon Co.op organized 600 trips to sell subsidized good to 36 provinces collecting VND35 billion ($1,540,012).
