Harmonizing Vietnamese and international standards
By the end of 2019, Vietnam has signed 13 free trade agreements (FTAs), 3 FTAs under negotiation. In order to help businesses expand their markets and increase the export of goods to the international market, improve their competitiveness, the national standard system (National Standard) must be in harmony with the inter-nation and region.

Products of URC Vietnam Limited Company apply quality management standards for export to many countries.

The current national standards system has about 11,500 standards with a 54% harmonization with the region and the world, built by 13 specialized management ministries. Especially, in the current period of deep integration with the world, harmonized standards with the international market will help businesses to expand the export of goods to the international market.

Mr. Hoang Manh Tan - Deputy General Director of Son Ha Joint Stock Company - said that the system of standards and regulations helps businesses in internal matters, such as reducing the proportion of non-standard goods; minimize the research rate on new commodity products; improve coordination with suppliers to customers, help improve the quality and reputation of businesses. Currently, Son Ha's products have been exported to many countries around the world, so in addition to observing Vietnamese standards and regulations, the application of regulations and standards of other countries is very important, helping to minimize many jobs and expenses for businesses.

Meanwhile, Mr. Pham Ngoc Bich - Deputy General Director of Dong Nai Electrical Equipment Joint Stock Company (THIBIDI) - said that the purpose of the integration is to create favorable conditions for Vietnamese enterprises' goods to penetrate into overseas markets, enabling domestic consumers to use products from different countries. THIBIDI Dong Nai aims to export products to foreign countries, so having standards, especially standards harmonized with the world, will help partners from other countries to trust THIBIDI products more. At that time, the company could easily bring the product to expand to many countries around the world. Vietnamese standards that are harmonious and highly compatible with international standards will be an advantage for businesses in the process of producing, distributing domestic products, as well as exporting to foreign countries.

For the state management agencies, it is necessary to review and improve the legal system, mechanisms and policies related to the national standard system to effectively implement the FTAs that Vietnam has and will sign; take advantage of opportunities to prevent and mitigate challenges caused by international disputes, especially international trade and investment disputes. At the same time, increasing participation in the activities of leading international standards organizations, developing bilateral relationships with other foreign standards organizations.
