At the program, agencies and departments of the city said that they were carefully preparing goods sources for Tet; ensuring food hygiene and safety, security and order, prevention of fire and explosion, and prevention of COVID-19; and organization of festivals to serve Tet.

For preparation of Tet products, businesses have prepared an abundant supply of goods, ensuring to meet the increasing shopping demand from now to the Lunar New Year.

Through the program, local people are especially interested in food safety, expecting that the authorities will increase inspection and supervision on all production facilities, including state production establishments, so that people can confidently consume products. In addition, the city should stabilize essential goods, especially meat and eggs, and not to let prices rise too high.

Ms. Truong Le My Ngoc, Deputy Head of the city People’s Council’s Commission of Economics-Budget, said that voters are still concerned about food safety and hygiene and quality of goods, therefore she asked related agencies to strictly control food safety at wholesale markets, traditional markets and stores./.
