VGP – Ha Noi has completed the evaluation and classification for 630 products achieving 3-5 star ratings.
Specifically, the city has 14 products with 5-star ratings; 421 products with 4-star ratings; and 195 products with 3-star ratings.
The OCOP was initiated by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development in 2008, based on Japan’s “One Village, One Product” and Thailand’s “One Town, One Product” programs. It is an economic development program for rural areas and focuses on increasing internal power and values, and is also to help with the national target program on new-style rural area building.
During the 2018-2020 period, Ha Noi allocated VND82 billion (US$3.54 million) to classify 800-1,000 goods and products under the OCOP program and acknowledge 500 others as OCOP products.
Under the instruction of Ha Noi’s leaders, the municipal Department of Agriculture and Rural Development hosted four conferences on connecting supply – demand for OCOP products, which have resulted in 500 contracts signed for distribution of agricultural products in Ha Noi’s market.
Along with the development of OCOP products, Ha Noi has launched 13 OCOP showrooms in the city and organized four OCOP trade promotion events for products from the northern mountainous, Red river delta, central highlands, and southern regions./.
