Vietnam's Internet economy, market size
According to a Google report, the Internet economy has grown 16% since 2019, reaching the highest level in Southeast Asia at US $ 14 billion.
Google also predicts that Vietnam will grow its Internet economy by 29% from 2020 to 2025, with a market size of around US $ 52 billion.
Shift to online due to Corona's isolation policy
Corona has imposed strict city lockdowns and movement restrictions.
Lockdown has forced many companies to shift online.
In Ho Chi Minh City, you will not be able to go out from mid-July 2021 to the end of September (provisional). Supermarkets and traditional markets are now selling to consumers online, and e-commerce sites are growing. However, cash penetration is very high in Vietnam and most Vietnamese do not have a bank account. Therefore, Vietnamese prefer cash on delivery, and the spread of mobile money is important for the transition to a digital society.
