She added Hanoi’s work on investment trade and tourism promotion would focus on innovating investment and trade activities in both content and implementation, diversifying investment attraction partners, as well as developing products, expanding the market and enhancing exports.
The city is also shifting its export structure towards increasing added value, encouraging the export of processed and manufactured products and those with high technological content, while strengthening cooperation to develop supply chains of products and goods, and accelerating IT application and digital transformation in trade promotion.
Over the past years, infrastructure for trade activities in Hanoi has been strongly developed, attracting top foreign-invested businesses to develop huge trade distribution centres like AEON, LOTTE, MM Mega Market; FUJIMART, as well as leading domestic Vietnamese ones like Winmart, Co-op Mart and others.
