According to the Hanoi Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, Hanoi is developing a production to consumption chain to promote the export of agricultural products

In order to support the expansion of the fruit and vegetable export markets, the Deputy Director of Hà Nội Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, Nguyễn Ngọc Sơn suggested that Hanoi needs to continue working closely with ministries and branches to strengthen connection and promotion activities for the official export of agricultural products. The city will also strengthen training courses for agricultural, forestry and fishery production and business establishments on quality and food safety regulations, while also controlling the imported and exported foods to promote farming produce production and export.

Hanoi's focus will lie on improving the quality of agricultural products by promoting information on free trade agreements, including EVFTA and CTPP as well as foreign market barriers, thereby meeting the increasing requirements of export markets. In addition, the city is promoting the development of coded quality and safe specialised farming areas associated with traceability, while also focussing on building brands for key agricultural products, ensuring export standards.

Lê Xuân Trường, deputy head of Hà Nội's Sub-Department of Cultivation and Plant Protection highlighted the importance of applying high technology to production and processing of key export commodities, while also emphasising the support that cooperatives, businesses, and farm owners needed in the process. In order to expand export opportunities and increase linkages, many cooperatives have continued to invest in production. Moreover, apart from supplying supermarkets, wholesale markets and neighbouring provinces, cooperatives have also exported 300-500 tonnes of safe vegetables to Taiwan and South Korea each year. 

Through the support for the development of cooperatives, Hanoi has managed to construct a total of 141 farming produce production chains, including 59 chains producing animal products and 82 chains producing plant products.
