The event features 350 booths which showcase typical OCOP products of various provinces and cities nationwide, bespoke handicraft products that originate from craft villages, and plenty of ornamental plants.
Organisers have worked closely with the provincial Department of Health to take drastic preventive measures during the course of event to ensure the safety of both visitors and residents in order to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
The OCOP fair is a trade promotion activity that aims to remove hurdles that local businesses face during the epidemic times, whilst supporting them in gradually restoring production, business, and consumption activities.
Nguyen Minh Tien, Director of the Central Coordination Office on New Rural Development, underscored the importance of the event as it contributes to efforts to reboot the local economy, provides a platform for businesses to introduce their latest products, and promotes tourism growth.
The event is scheduled to last until May 21.
