HCM CITY — The HCM City Business Association held a conference to nominate the year’s ‘typical products and services’ of the city and finalise plans for an exhibition of Vietnamese goods on November 23.
Nguyễn Phước Hưng, deputy president of HUBA, said the event was held in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic causing severe losses to the city's businesses, placing them in a very difficult situation.
The programme seeks to encourage businesses to continue turning challenges into opportunities, improve product quality, develop sustainable brands, and enhance their competitive advantages, he said.
Speaking about the voting criteria, the organisers said in addition to the usual criteria like efficiency, revenues, profits, tax payments, modern production processes, and application of artificial intelligence, this year they had added one more: enterprises’ creativity and innovativeness to overcome the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Within the framework of the programme, HUBA will also organise an exhibition of Vietnamese goods to help businesses introduce quality and reputable products and promote consumption.
The exhibition is likely to be held on December 20-21, with a ceremony to honour HCM City Typical Products and Services taking place on the 20th. — VNS
