The programme was signed among the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT)’s Department of E-Commerce and Digital Economy, the Vietnam Institute of Business Management Science and Digital Economy (VIDEM), the Association of Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises, and the Kim Nam Group.

Addressing the signing ceremony, MoIT Deputy Minister Cao Quoc Hung hailed efforts of all parties in putting the Vietnam-EU e-commerce floor into operation as soon as possible, thus helping Vietnamese firms to grasp opportunities from the EVFTA. He underlined that amid the fourth Industrial Revolution, the improvement of competitiveness and the development of infrastructure system may create breakthroughs. Statistics showed that the EU is one of the leading trade partners of Vietnam. EVFTA is a comprehensive agreement that ensures interests of both Vietnam and the EU.
