Ms. Tran Thi Lan Chi, head of the Sale Department of Moc Lan Vien Investment Trading Service Company said that it is the third time the company participates in the event. Moc Lan Vien brings about 20 types of tree seeds, vegetables and fruits to this year’s conference and expects to connect with more partners and receive many orders to increase revenue after seeing a decline of about 30 percent due to the HCMC’s long term social distancing.
Speaking at the location in Hanoi, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Do Thang Hai said that the annual supply-demand connection conference between HCMC and provinces has become a trading venue for supply chains and consumers. Contracts and memorandums of understanding (MOUs) signed in the conference have contributed to the economic development of the domestic market.

Vice Chairwoman of the HCMC People’s Committee Phan Thi Thang stressed that the supply-demand connection conference is an important initiative that helps localities seek suitable and effective consumption markets for their products and HCMC’s distribution systems find prestigious suppliers providing high-quality products. Farmers have also an opportunity to approach and learn about the market demand to invest in the large-scale safe and sustainable production.
Ten years after launch, the conference has established a favorable connected supply chain contributing to the market stability and ensuring the social security, especially during the complicated and unpredictable developments of the Covid-19 pandemic, she added.
