HCMC launches “mobile markets” on buses


The Ho Chi Minh City Department of Industry and Trade has recently collaborated with transportation units to launch "mobile markets" on buses to promptly supply essential goods for people amid the social distancing order and complicated Covid-19 pandemic.

Almost all the bus seats were removed to make room for vegetables and the bus staff who will turn into sellers. The “mobile markets” sell vegetables at a stable price to all the districts in the city to promptly provide for local residents.
