The ceramic street is jointly implemented by the provincial Department of Industry and Trade, the provincial Ceramics and Tile Association, and the provincial Association of Literature and Arts.

Vinh Long red ceramic products are now present in European, American, Australian, and Asian markets. Each year, more than 5 million ceramic products of all kinds are made in Vinh Long province, generating revenue of over 500 billion VND.
