The ministry also estimates that the total retail of goods and services will grow 9-9.5 percent annually during the period.
It will effectively conduct State management over markets via appropriate tools and mechanisms and eradicate smuggled, fake, and banned goods and those that violate intellectual property in 90 percent of business establishments in cities and provinces by 2025.
At a meeting reviewing the 2016-2020 socio-economic development plan, the MoIT said the domestic market played an important role in goods consumption, contributing to poverty reduction and ensuring social welfare, evidenced by a growth of nearly 9.2 percent in retail and services revenue in the last five years.
Of note, the domestic market contributed 10.5 percent of GDP in 2016 and 11.16 percent in 2019.
Figures show that Vietnamese goods account for 90-96 percent of those available in the domestic retail network and have won popularity among consumers nationwide.- (VNA/VLLF)
