The Hanoitimes - E-commerce is seen as a practical solution to help promote exports and expand business opportunities in the context of the global economic crisis.

This idea was shared by many of the domestic and foreign experts attending a seminar o­n June 5 in Ho Chi Minh City o­n boosting Vietnamese exports through e-commerce.

In recent years, the Ministry of Industry and Trade has been actively assisting businesses to apply e-commerce in their operations, including exports and imports.

However, Vietnamese businesses still lack general information about markets, legal corridors, partners and import-export procedures.

This is attributable to the businesses themselves because they have not been proactive in searching for information, said Tran Huu Linh, Head of the E-commerce and Information Technology Department under the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

“Businesses should learn more about the importance of e-commerce,” he said, adding that each o­ne needs to work out its own strategy for using the technology.


Mr Linh also stressed the need to develop specialized e-commerce trading floors.
