Ho Chi Minh City authorities seized thousands of fake luxury goods at two famous local markets last week.
According to Tuoi Tre News, market watchdog officers seized more than 1500 fake items worth US$6282 at Saigon Square and Ben Thanh Market, the latter one of Ho Chi Minh City’s most popular tourist attractions.
All the products seized are copies of famous luxury brands including Prada, Montblanc, Gucci and Rolex.
Representatives of the General Department for Market Management said the unit will keep preventing vendors from selling counterfeit and pirated goods, focusing on hotspots where these items are commonly on show.
Located in the city’s centre, Saigon Square and Ben Thanh Market are renowned for selling fake luxury goods to tourists.
