HÀ NỘI — The southern province of Đồng Tháp launched a website to sell the provincial agricultural products and specialities at htxdacsandongthap.com on Wednesday.
Ngô Chí Công, a representative of Đồng Tháp Specialty Cooperative, said the website currently offers more than 220 agricultural products and local specialities from 50 small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and cooperatives.
He said e-commerce channels would help the SMEs, cooperatives and production facilities sell their products in the context of COVID-19, adding: “It is also time for them to participate in the digital transformation process.”
Earlier, the cooperative partnered with websites, social networks and e-commerce platforms to advertise on Google to increase the sales performance of businesses.
In the future, the province may expand cross-border sales in Southeast Asian countries, said Công.
Huỳnh Lam Hồ, co-founder and CEO of Haravan Technology Company, which works with the province's businesses in implementing e-commerce and omnichannel retail solutions for 2021-2025, said: "For businesses to implement digital transformation in multi-channel sales and commerce effectively, besides the technology and training, equipping local businesses and their staff with digital and e-commerce knowledge is key."
According to the agreement between Đồng Tháp Department of Industry and Trade and Haravan, firms in the province will be supported in digital transformation and e-commerce. VNS
