Vietnamese exporters find buyers online

Chinese business-to-business (B2B) giant Alibaba.com is helping more Vietnamese exporters do business online, with up to 90 Vietnamese businesses actively filling export orders online via its site, OSB Investment and Technology Joint Stock Co deputy director Tran Dinh Toan told Viet Nam News.

According to Alibaba.com, the number of Vietnamese businesses registered with the site stood at 180,000 at the end of 2011, and online trading was an increasingly effective measure to help small- and medium-sized enterprises without opportunities to participate in international exhibitions compete with larger companies.

Alibaba had helped Vietnamese companies target key markets in India, Bangladesh and Southeast Asia, giving them an introduction to foreign importers, said AVAS Trading and Production Joint Stock Co director Nguyen Thanh Tung.
