The number of outlets selling goods at stabilised prices in Ho Chi Minh
City, the country’s largest economic hub, had totalled 7,500 as by
July 30, 483 more than the figure in April, 2013 when the city launched
the price stabilisation programme.

This year’s
price stabilisation programme focuses on four groups of goods, including
essential foods and foodstuff, schooling materials, medicines and dairy
products.

HCM City has set a target of opening 525
more outlets, including five supermarkets, 37 convenient shops, and 30
Co.op marts by the end of the programme on March 31, 2014.

At a conference to review the efficiency of the programme on July 30,
Deputy Director of the municipal Department of Industry and Trade Le
Ngoc Dao said the firms joining in the programmes are working to ensure
the supply of quality goods for the market as assigned.

The department has designed a logo to label price stabilised goods and
will publicise it in October to make it easier for customers when
shopping, Dao said.-VNA
