Tran Huu Linh, Director of the Vietnam E-commerce and Information Technology Agency, said e-commerce has entered individuals’ daily lives and business strategies, and it is a key element that helps restructure enterprises and improve their competitiveness.
E-commerce and IT, Linh said, help connect units within a business and allow effective communication and sharing between them.
E-commerce proved its indispensable role for Vietnamese enterprises from 2006-2010. Its role is especially prominent in remote areas, where spatial and temporal distances can be narrowed with the application of e-commerce and IT.
By the end of 2011, 57 provinces and cities had introduced plans to develop local e-commerce within the 2011-2015 period.
In 2011, the Vietnam E-commerce and Information Technology Agency launched more than 60 training courses in this field for the business community nationwide.
It is working with relevant agencies to help formulate a new decree on e-commerce and to promote e-commerce via mass media.
