The vice chairman of its board, Hai, said, "The programme is not a prize but only the starting point for companies to become the programme's partners."

"We must develop respected product names in both the local and foreign markets," added Hai. "Vietnam participates actively and extensively in the process of global economic integration, which reinforces its place in the global supply chain and improves the economy's competitiveness."

Through promotional efforts and corporate assistance, the Vietnam Value Programme has increased awareness of local products and created customer trust and preference for goods and services, both domestically and internationally.

The programme has contributed to increasing the business community's awareness of the role of brands in introducing additional value, thereby enhancing competitiveness and confirming their position in the market based on innovation, creativity, and pioneering capacity.
