Walmart to aid Vietnamese women

Walmart plans to provide special priority to women-owned business suppliers in Vietnam to enable easier access to global supply chains, the company’s officials announced.

The initiative to give priority to women-owned suppliers is part of a programme implemented worldwide by the giant US-owned firm.

During a conference organised last Friday by the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) in HCM City, hundreds of Vietnamese female entrepreneurs met Walmart’s representatives and American officials to seek opportunities to join global supply chains.
