Viet Nam News HCM CITY— Twenty one southern cities and provinces will colaborate in the development of a farm-produce chain to ensure safe, quality products reach the market, according to the HCM City Investment and Trade Promotion Centre (ITPC).

A supply-demand connectivity programme will be held in HCM City in July to promote consumption of safe produce in the localities.

ITPC will invite supermarkets, restaurants, hotels, food and foodstuff suppliers, traders at traditional markets, catering enterprises, food processors, convenience stores and vegetable and fruit stores to participate.

Suppliers have to register with the centre to participate.

At a meeting it held last week, officials from the industry and trade and agriculture departments of the 21 localities and investment and trade promotion centres pledged to work together to build a southern regional data base on investment and trade.

The data base called “1+20 Model” will be regularly updated to provide information on investment and trade to domestic and foreign investors, Nguyễn Văn Út, head of the Southwest Region Steering Committee’s office, said.

The data base is expected to be launched at the end of the year. —VNS
