The trend of transitioning from traditional business to digital platforms is becoming increasingly popular and is considered an effective solution to help businesses penetrate and expand export markets in the context of Vietnam's deep integration with the global economy. Currently, Binh Duong is focusing on promoting digital transformation to develop e-commerce.

Over the past time, the Department of Industry and Trade has implemented many activities to develop e-commerce, supporting businesses to keep up with new business trends, especially small and medium-sized enterprises, cooperatives, and production facilities. Mr. Nguyen Thai Phu, Director of T.P Food Trading Company Limited, shares: "Together with the application of modern technology in the production line to enhance product quality, through trade promotion programs, the company actively seeks customers by placing products on e-commerce platforms, contributing to expanding the market, creating strategic business relationships with partners."

E-commerce has become an essential trend, part of the development priority of Binh Duong. In the first 4 months of 2024, the total retail sales of goods and service revenue of the province reached 81.177 billion VND. The Department of Information and Communications, the average e-commerce proportion of the province is 8%. Binh Duong ranks third in the Vietnam E-commerce Index 2024 with 51.3 points. On the e-commerce page -, there are currently 544 businesses and 2,990 products participating in transactions.

Mr. Tran Van Tung, Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Science and Technology, said that although the e-commerce market is developing quite rapidly, there are still many existing limitations. Specifically, the development scale among localities is not uniform, the use of cash in e-commerce transactions is still quite common, the unequal competition between domestic e-commerce platforms and foreign platforms, and the trust of consumers in online transactions is not high. Next to that, activities of delivery, safety, cyber security and personal data protection in electronic commerce transactions also pose significant challenges for businesses. These difficulties require the collaboration of regulatory agencies, scientists, to jointly find development solutions for businesses, especially those in the process of transformation.
