On August 26 American singer Kyo York, despite a rainstorm, took a flight to Saigon and went straight to the Co.opmart Foodcosa supermarket, on Quang Trung Street, Go Vap District, to participate in a performance programme to promote Vietnamese goods.

The programme, called “Tu hao hang Viet” (Proud of Vietnamese Goods), is the Co.opmart supermarket system’s largest promotion in the year.

“Proud of Vietnamese Goods 2017” will offer attractive discounts for three weeks, from August 26 to September 17, at all Co.opmart and Co.opXtra supermarkets nation-wide.

After singing Thuong qua Viet Nam oi to huge cheers from the audience, Kyo York shared images of his shopping at Co.opmart Nguyen Dinh Chieu.

He said he trusts the quality and prices of Vietnamese goods, and likes Vietnamese rice especially.

After coming to know it was the 20th anniversary of the very meaningful Proud of Vietnamese Goods programme, he was eager to take part in it, he said.

The highlights of the programme are activities to increase the benefits of customers when buying Vietnamese goods, including discounts of up to 50 per cent on thousands of products, hundreds of valuable gifts, points that are many times higher than normal, and very big discounts on many Vietnamese goods under the “Super incentive” programme.

There are also many other attractive activities such as setting aside space for suppliers to organise samples, introducing new products, and game shows to promote Vietnamese goods.

During the “Proud of Vietnamese Goods 2017” promotion month, Saigon Co.op will organise a programme called Vietnamese goods trip - Together with Co.opmart to spread the love of Vietnamese goods.

It will see truck carrying Vietnamese goods depart from the southernmost province of Ca Mau, go through Can Tho, HCM City and central and northern provinces and cities to reach Ha Noi before finishing in Thai Nguyen Province.

During the trans-Viet Nam journey, the organisers plan to hand out more than 20,000 gifts, all made-in Viet Nam products, to local residents en route to spread happiness among them and at the same time promote Vietnamese goods. — VNS
