Speaking at the workshop, Mr. Nguyen Ngoc Dung, Vice Chairman of Vietnam E-Commerce Association – VECOM said, “A principle of immutableness in the Vietnamese market is that” to sell goods to market”. However, in reality, farmers or small business households in rural areas still lack a lot of information and skills needed to bring their products to market. So how can the specialty products of rural villages reach consumers across the country in the fastest way? E-commerce will help shorten this road, help craft villages expand their businesses, save marketing costs, and increase product value. ”
