Of which, the total number of specialized inspections was 3,981 cases, an increase of 1,381 cases (up 53.11%); the number of violations was 3,576 cases, an increase of 1,673 cases (up 87.91%) compared to the same period last year.

HCM City Market Surveillance Department collected over VND 73 billion (up 89.88% year-on-year), including over VND62.2 billion in administrative fines, over VND 10 billion from the sale of seized goods and over VND1 billion in arrears of illegal profits. The value of destroyed goods was VND 54 billion (up 62.51% compared with the same period of the previous year). The value of confiscated goods waiting for sale was about VND111 billion and goods waiting for destruction was about VND5.68 billion.

The leader of HCM City Market Surveillance Department said that the department has developed and implemented a peak plan on fighting against smuggling and trade fraud, and counterfeit goods before, during and after Lunar New Year 2024. Along with that, the department has built a working plan in 2024 that focus on specific solutions in controlling the market, preventing the trading of smuggled and infringing goods.
