Launching business opportunity in service sector

In the first three months, some companies in the service sector have warmly welcomed the support from Ministry of Trade through establishing and operating Vietnam E-commerce Portal (ECVN). However, those enterprises showed that ECVN focused so much on trade in goods and has not yet pay much attention to service trade.  
Currently, in the world as well as in Vietnam, service trade is developing rapidly and accounting for a great part in GDP. Service companies are very active and tend to apply strongly e-commerce. The fact shows that in the first three months of operation, ECVN has not well designed to support those enterprises.
In that reality, in November, ECVN had an important improvement to support enterprises to seek for business opportunities in service sector. Since then, companies operating in tourism, transportation, distribution, insurance and construction, etc., can post business opportunities and find partners on ECVN rapidly and methodological. That improvement also helps members trading in goods have more transactions with service providers.
Like goods classification basing on HS96 of World Customs Organization (WCO), service classification of ECVN is based on Central Product Classification, United Nations, and Version 1.0. This classification according to CPC will ensure the consistency with online support target between business to business (B2B) of ECVN.   
Currently, enterprises seeking business opportunities or partners in service sector can easily find on www.ecvn.gov.vn because those business opportunities are located on the homepage.
It can be said that service trade support has been the biggest improvement of ECVN over the past three months. ECVN Board of Management wish to get more feedback from members as well as every enterprises to continuously upgrade and improve ECVN to server trade activities better.
