HÀ NỘI — The southern province of Trà Vinh on Tuesday launched an e-commerce website at http://travinhtrade.vn.
Nguyễn Trung Hoàng, vice chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, said that the website aimed at improving the efficiency of trade promotion activities, and providing, as well as updating information, about Trà Vinh’s specialties.
The local enterprises would be able to advertise products and seek partners, while consumers would have a trustworthy place to choose high-quality goods, Hoàng said.
So far, 15 firms have registered to do business on the website to promote 50 specialities. Enterprises can apply to be the website’s member for free.
Director of the provincial Department of Industry and Trade Trần Quốc Tuấn said that local firms had not been interested in e-commerce, which is seen by the fact that only 250 among 1,900 enterprises in the province have their own websites.
The department would step-by-step complete, upgrade and integrate more supporting functions to facilitate purchasing processes in a safe, convenient and time-saving manner, Tuấn added. — VNS
