The Vietnam E-commerce Association (VECOM), in cooperation with the Vietnam Export Support Alliance (VESA), will organize the Vietnam eTrade Conference (VETC) in Hanoi on May 16 to assist businesses and related organizations to better implement e-commerce in import-export activities.

The conference will discuss three main themes revolving around the three pillars of online imports and exports. The first is online public services for transactions between State management agencies and exporters (G2B), the second is the opportunity to expand exports by joining B2B e-business platforms, and the third is the trends and solutions for direct import and export development towards the end consumer (B2B2C).

This is the first conference held on the topic in Vietnam and is expected attract the participation of delegates from agencies, organizations and enterprises relating to imports and exports. It will provide a venue for enterprises to exchange information on the benefits of e-commerce transactions, trends in online retail with foreign customers, and proposals to government agencies that provide online public services associated with imports and exports.

According to the Vietnam E-commerce Indicators Report 2017, many Vietnamese businesses have applied e-commerce to support imports and exports. In parallel with the increasing access to online public services such as e-customs, electronic certificates of origin, and many other public services relating to imports and exports, enterprises have actively used the internet to exchange business information with foreign partners, find partners, and implement contracts. The number of domestic consumers purchasing products online from foreign retailers has also increased sharply.

The import and export business is a complicated commercial activity, however, involving many agencies, organizations and enterprises. The potential for the application of e-commerce to bolster the field is therefore enormous. E-commerce helps businesses improve efficiency at all stages, from marketing and trade promotion to contracting and implementing contracts, making payments, completing customs formalities, and finalizing procedures with State management agencies.

Speakers will include experts in the field of commerce, e-commerce, logistics, and payments from agencies, organizations, and enterprises such as the Import-Export Department, the E-commerce Department, the Foreign Trade University, Alibaba, OSB, Payoneer, Lazada, Fado, Nguyen Kim, and Giao Hang Nhanh. The Vietnam Export Assistance Alliance will also introduce the potential of direct links between businesses.
