So far, localities nationwide have organised 66 OCOP fairs.

Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Nguyen Xuan Cuong said that the figure of nearly 4,500 products demonstrated the success of the first phase of the programme.

However, the report pointed to several shortcomings during the implementation of the first phase. Accordingly, several localities got troubled in defining their advantages and potential, and many only focused on completing existing products and did not pay attention to developing new products, reported Vietnam News Agency.

In a recent national conference reviewing the OCOP programme in the 2018-2020 period, Deputy Minister Trinh Dinh Dung said that the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development will coordinate with other ministries and sectors in completing the Government’s dossiers to submit to the National Assembly for approving investment in the programme for 2021-2025.

Ministries, sectors and localities are required to strengthen management over the implementation of the programme, guide the classification of products in localities, and supplement and complete a set of criteria assessing and rating OCOP products./.
