The awards ceremony will take place in Ho Chi Minh City on September 2 when the nation is celebrating the National Day.
The Vietnamese Young Entrepreneurs Association Vice President, Nguyen Manh Cuong, said at a press briefing in Hanoi on August 25 that there will other events to promote Vietnamese trademarks along with the awards ceremony such as a “Vietnamese Golden Star” parade for children in difficult circumstances and a flower-decorated convoy marching named “Vietnamese Golden Star-Vietnamese Trademark Promotion”.
Young people will have a chance to talk with young businesspeople during the event through a seminar.

So far, 1,127 trademarks and products have won the prize.
Many of the prize winners have managed to increase their revenues between 150 and 200 percent as well as expand exports and take a firm foothold on foreign markets.
