Chinese e-commerce group, Alibaba, on Thursday authorised Viet Nam’s Novaon Internet Corporation to be its reseller in the Viet Nam market.
Under the authorised dealer agreement, Novaon will become the official distributor of Alibaba.com’s export-import support services packages, helping Vietnamese enterprises to access, exploit and master this online business platform.
Tran Thanh Hai, deputy director of the Import-Export Department under the Ministry of Industry and Trade, said export-import activities require interactions between e-commerce and traditional trade; therefore, enterprises need partners and policies to promote the use of e-commerce.
Novaon is Alibaba’s third authorised dealer in Việt Nam, after OSB Investment and Technology Joint Stock Company and Clever Advertising Corporation (Cleverads).
The global platform is a relatively comprehensive concept applied at a high level in dynamic and developing economies, encompassing large interactive online platforms on a global scale.
The world’s leading online business platforms include Alibaba, Google, Facebook, eBay and Amazon.
However, in Viet Nam, most of the enterprises still rely on traditional export channels or exploit online business channels on a very basic level, such as website or email.
Therefore, Novaon has built a comprehensive solution for online export; of which, Alibaba.com, the well-known business to business (B2B) online website for export-import, is considered one of the most significant parts of the overall package.
Novaon also launched the programme “1000 online pioneer export enterprises” on this occasion.
The programme is designed to create 1,000 exporters who are capable of applying and exploiting global online trading platforms on an advanced level, and then diffusing and motivating the export community.
