E-commerce clears the way for Vietnamese goods to reach global market

E-commerce has not only become an effective tool to help enterprises overcome obstacles posed by the pandemic but is also expected to act as a key to clearing the way for Vietnamese goods to make further inroads into the global market.

E-commerce in Vietnam is being expanded with many models and players, and supply chains are gradually being modernised with the assistance of digitisation and information technology.

The size of e-commerce in Vietnam is forecast to reach US$43 billion in 2025.

With a young population and high smartphone ownership, Vietnam has seen rapid growth in e-commerce with 35 million users, creating revenue of US$11.8 billion in 2020, accounting for 5.5% of total retail sales and consumer services, compared to 4.9% a year earlier.

Amid the impacts of Covid-19, the e-commerce market is becoming more dynamic, and the creation of new distribution channels on digital platforms is helping Vietnamese enterprises overcome difficulties and change consumers’ shopping habits - from physical to online stores.

Cross-border e-commerce is also an effective means for Vietnamese enterprises to participate in the global supply chain, helping reduce risk when traditional supply chains are disrupted.

Director of Amazon Global Selling in Vietnam Gijae Seong said Vietnam is one of the most dynamic emerging economies in the world and has demonstrated its firm position amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Amazon wishes to make more contributions to the development of cross-border e-commerce in Vietnam and promote Vietnamese enterprises to reach further into the global market, said Seong.

The Amazon official added that the retailer is actively realising that by expanding cooperation with organisations in Vietnam, training small and medium-sized enterprises in cross-border e-commerce skills, fostering changes to the future of Vietnam’s export and digital economy.

The breakneck growth of e-commerce recently has made Vietnam one of the markets with the greatest potential in ASEAN. But besides benefits such as helping enterprises widen their markets, cut costs, increase profits and fast payment, there are several drawbacks of trading online.

Fake and smuggled goods and goods in violation of intellectual property rights are quite commonplace on many digital shopping sites. Social media networks are also emerging as popular e-commerce platforms, but are not properly regulated.

IDEA is also building an e-commerce credit platform as a tool to evaluate those doing business in the online space and credit ratings will be widely announced to consumers.
