III. Member support

Online support through Yahoo Messenger

Online support is a new channel to better support members and companies which wish to become ECVN members. In addition to that, through those utilities, those members can send questions and requirements of other supports of ECVN utilities rapidly and effectively.

Better support enterprises in the field of services

In Vietnamese economic structure in recent years, companies in the fields of services are developing rapidly. However, on ECVN, services basing on CPC classification came into use later than goods basing on HS codes. Moreover, many members can’t get used to using CPC classifications. Therefore, over the time, Board of Management gives support through email and telephone to help members to get accustomed to CPC codes for their service products. Board of Management is making preparations for support programs for members in the fields of transportation, tourism, advertising, consultancy and etc.
