Ninety percent goods that being sold at supermarkets in the Mekong delta province of Can Tho are Vietnamese products including textile, household appliances, fresh foods, vegetables…
Accordingly, in the first eight months of 2014, turnover of eight supermarkets reached VND 1,572billion.
Can Tho has 31 enterprises and cooperatives that are able to supply goods for supermarkets however, it seems not meet enough demand because reality, goods supplying for local supermarkets are from Ho Chi Minh’s enterprises.
Ms Duong Thi Nam, Director of Co.op Mart Can Tho said the Can Tho specialties have still not been introduced to Co.op Mart, we have to buy goods from HCMC, it is necessary to overcome this situation in upcoming times.
Mr Le Hung Dung, Chairman of Can Tho People’s Committee has asked Can Tho Investment Promotion Center to link supermarkets, commercial centers, enterprises and cooperatives in the province, aiming to select the provincial typical and high quality goods that meet the supermarkets’ demand in order to sell since now till later on.
