On April 9, 2019, Nearly 50 delegates from enterprises and coconut products businesses in Ben Tre province attended the seminar "Bringing e-commerce to the countryside – Ben Tre Coconut Village online" at the hall of the Provincial Department Lazada.vn of Industry and Trade.
Speaking at the seminar, Mr. Nguyen Ngoc Dung, Vice Chairman of Vietnam E-Commerce Association – VECOM said that "An unsymillable principle in the Vietnamese market is "to sell goods that must be marketed". However, in reality, farmers or small business households in rural areas still lack a lot of information and skills necessary to bring their products to market. So how can the specialty products of rural craft villages reach consumers throughout the country in the fastest way? E-commerce will help shorten this path, help trade villages expand their business, save marketing costs, and increase product value."
