HCM City takes lead in e-commerce

QĐND – Friday, December 17, 2010, 20:56 (GMT+7)

An international seminar on e-commerce took place in Ho Chi Minh City on December 16, attracting the participation of businesses, executives and lecturers in the country and abroad.

At the seminar, the first of its kind in Vietnam jointly held by the Viet Trung Hoa Investment and Development Joint Stock Company and Vietnam E-commerce Development Centre, participants discussed how to promote made-in-Vietnam products on international markets through e-commerce, while working on business strategies in line with global development trends.

The participants engaged in an exchange with Vietnamese businesses who are pioneers in applying e-commerce to business and with foreign experts to update information about e-commerce across the world.

The seminar also included direct talks with disabled people who have actively contributed to the development of society in general and to Vietnam’s information technology in particular, such as Le Dan Bach Viet MA, a blind teacher from Nguyen Dinh Chieu school for visually-impaired children, and Huynh Thi Kim Cuc, an IT expert.

Tran Vinh Nhung, Deputy Director of the HCM City Department of Industry and Trade, said businesses in HCM City are taking the lead in applying e-commerce, engaging in e-commerce trading floors and offering a wide range of online services.

However, Nhung said, they are facing numerous obstacles while using e-commerce, particularly regarding security and electronic payment systems.

The seminar provided an opportunity for participants to make suggestions to the HCM City People’s Committee on a plan to develop e-commerce in the 2011-2015 period.
