This is an important target mentioned in the city's plan on the development of OCOP showrooms associated with craft village tourism in Hanoi in 2021.

Under the plan, the city’s authorities will promote production and sale of handicraft products, especially OCOP products, typical rural industrial items, and those with market potential in the capital, provinces and cities nationwide.

According to the plan, each district/town will have two operating OCOP showrooms or more.

The municipal People's Committee will conduct a survey to find locations of OCOP showrooms according to regulations.

The committee has also required departments and localities to inspect and supervise the operation of OCOP showrooms opened in 2020 and 2021, organize promotional programs to enhance the consumption of quality products, including those from provinces and cities nationwide.

As of 2020, Hanoi had completed a similar process for 630 OCOP products achieving 3-star rating and above.

The city targets to complete the evaluation and classification for at least 2,000 OCOP products by 2025, Director of the municipal Department of Agricultural and Rural Development Chu Phu My told a conference taking stock of the OCOP program last year. In the coming time, the city will continue to push for greater efficiency in the implementation of the program.
