eBAY eyes Vietnamese online market   2009-03-28 - VietNamNet/TN

eBay, the US company that runs online auction and shopping website, is seeking support from the Vietnamese government and businesses to promote its services in the country. 


It has sought co-operation with the Trade Promotion Agency to work out new online trading solutions for local businesses, director of the agency’s Export Promotion Center, Le Xuan Duong, said.


Duong told Thanh Nien Daily Thursday eBay wants the agency to act as a bridge with local businesses. It would offer local trading space in its website, he said.


eBay focuses on businesses in garments, shoes, handicrafts, furniture and computers. It is establishing relations with forwarders and bankers in the country to facilitate online trade, he said.


But he said the firm would found it difficult in Vietnam since the country lacks facilities for delivery and payments.


Last year eBay announced an alliance with Vietnamese software company PeaceSoft, which runs, an online market website.
