Unleashing Vietnam's Cross-border E-commerce Development Potential

Vietnam has strongly transformed itself to emerge as a new emerging center of the global production and supply chains, thanks to its ability to supply a wide range of world-class quality products at competitive prices. According to a report by Access Partnership, Vietnam's B2C retail exports through e-commerce are estimated at $3.5 billion by 2022, signaling the immense potential of cross-border e-commerce for export growth. Through Amazon, nearly 10 million Made-in-Vietnam products were sold globally over the past 12 months. The number of Vietnamese selling partners on Amazon also grew up to 80%.

Emerging as an important manufacturing hub of Asia and the world, Vietnam is poised to captivate global consumers with its distinctive "Made-in-Vietnam" products. Nevertheless, the path to long-term success involves a much more comprehensive approach. Manufacturing prowess, understanding the complex dynamics of B2C exporting, and the requirement of brand building form the successful transformation.
