Walmart to buy Vietnamese goods

(VOV) - The American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) in Ho Chi Minh City representatives will meet with nearly 100 businesses in Vietnam on January 15 to discuss measures to bring a wide range of Vietnamese goods and agricultural products to consumers in the US Walmart’s key retail markets in the US, Canada, Mexico, Japan, and Chile.

AmCham Vietnam in HCM City Executive Director Herb Cochran said the meeting will help Vietnamese suppliers understand ways and regulations to sell goods to Walmart.

US businesses have put forward their own regulations on doing outsourcing that potential suppliers must understand and follow, Cochran said.

Since Walmart opened an office in HCM City in late 2013, it has established good relations with many Vietnamese suppliers.
