Vietnam has 15.5 million internet users – but little commercial use

The Asia Digital Marketing Yearbook – www.asiadma.com gives Vietnam an internet population of 15.5 million users but reports that the country derives little economic benefit.

“However, the internet is not used to any great effect: The websites of many ministries and provinces are not updated and do not have useful information; though all universities are connected,” reports Vietnamnet, ” only a tiny number of students are able to access the net.

“Furthermore, a survey by the Viet Nam Chamber of Commerce and Industry found that 92% of businesses that had websites did not bother to update them, 70% of businesses in big cities did not use web services, and 97% of entrepreneurs did not know about e-commerce.”
