Nearly 1,000 students participate in the contest.
In the contest, the top 10 of outstanding business ideas would be selected and received direct support from iDEA, Amazon Global Selling and T&T Group and other investors. During the process of realizing ideas, students will have opportunities to be trained and provided knowledge on e-commerce, particularly experience in doing business in cross-border e-commerce, as well as brand building and business consultation.
Vice Director of iDEA Lai Viet Anh said the contest aims to raise awareness of the society regarding cross-border e-commerce and improve the quality of the human resources, while it gives students opportunities to develop their business ideas into reality.
“Students could grasp this chance to introduce their products to international markets, in turn taking Vietnamese brand to the world stage,” Anh stated.
Director of T&T’s International Trade and Investment Promotion Department Tran Kim Oanh referred to Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc’s instruction that the Fourth Industrial Revolution is a turning point for Vietnam, in which, the high quality workforce would lay the foundation for the country to take on this opportunity.
With the participation of Amazon in this contest, Oanh believed Vietnamese students would not only gain valuable experiences in e-commerce, but also be inspired by the development of cross-border business ideas.

In early 2019, the Vietnam Trade Promotion Agency (VIETTRADE) under the Ministry of Industry and Trade unveiled its plan for collaboration with Amazon Global Selling program in a bid to boost exports through e-commerce.
Following the deal, Amazon would support Vietnamese enterprises, especially small and medium ones, to access global market and promote brands on Amazon.com.
