The Việt Nam National Brand is organised by the Việt Nam Trade Promotion Agency under the Ministry of Industry and Trade twice a year. This is also the Government's only long-term programme to build and develop national brands through product trademarks to enhance the competitiveness of Vietnamese products in the international arena.
With the core values of 'Quality–Innovation-Leadership', the programme expects to accompany businesses in sharing and pursuing new innovation values to create Vietnamese high-quality products.

VNPAY will expand and promote payment development in many areas, especially payments for small business households that have not previously been able to access new forms of payment. The expansion of payment methods would create a pre-condition for the target of accelerating non-cash payments in Việt Nam. This is also one of the Government's aspirations in building e-government, promoting businesses to develop the digital economy and helping the Government run a digital society.
Lê Tánh, VNPAY's general director, said: "Participating in the Việt Nam National Brand 2020 programme is an opportunity for VNPAY to affirm its position as a leading fintech firm in Việt Nam. The award is an opportunity to increase brand awareness, affirm the brand name strength, reputation and quality of VNPAY's products and services. This would contribute to building the image of a strong National Brand, affirming Việt Nam’s e-payment platform in the international payment market."
Việt Nam National Brand 2020 is an opportunity for VNPAY to comprehensively evaluate activities of providing products, services and branding strategy. Thereby, it would affirm, promote and continue to pursue the vision “Simplifying the life”. In the future, VNPAY will continue to research to create products that bring tremendous value to customers.
