Nguyen Trung Hoang, Vice Chairman of Tra Vinh provincial People’s Committee stated that the application of e-commerce aims to enhance the effectiveness of trade promotion activities in and outside the province.
Hoang noted that the platform is an official and updated information exchange channel on goods and typical products of Tra Vinh province.
Through the platform, Tra Vinh enterprises are able to promote their products, update market information, and seek market demand. Consumers will thus have a reliable address to choose quality products.
Thus far, 15 enterprises with 50 typical products of Tra Vinh province have registered to participate in transactions on this platform.
Tra Vinh electronic trading platform is directly managed by Tra Vinh’s Department of Industry and Trade which allows local enterprises to register for free membership.
According to Tran Quoc Tuan, Director of Tra Vinh’s Department of Industry and Trade, Tra Vinh enterprises have not been enthusiastic with the new application of electronic trading.
Tuan noted that only 250 out of 1,900 enterprises in Tra Vinh have websites, according to a recent survey conducted by the province’s industry and trade sector. Meanwhile, the application of electronic trading is considered an effective tool for enterprises in big cities such as Ho Chi Minh City and Can Tho.
He also added that Tra Vinh’s Department of Industry and Trade will gradually improve supporting tools and payment functions to facilitate the fast, safe and convenient purchase of goods. In addition to this efficiency training courses on the platform will be held for local enterprises, Tuan stated.
