A strategy for developing domestic trade between 2021 and 2030 has been signed off by Deputy Prime Minister Le Van Thanh, aiming to raise domestic trade’s proportion in the country’s GDP to 15 - 15.5 percent in the next 10 years.
Under the strategy, domestic trade will grow by an average 9 - 9.5 percent a year, and retail sales of goods and consumer service revenue by 13 - 13.5 percent during the period.
By 2030, domestic trade via e-commerce is expected to increase by about 20 - 21 percent annually to account for 10.5 - 11 percent of total retail sales of goods and consumer service revenue. The percentage of small- and medium-sized enterprises involved in trading activities is hoped to surpass 40 - 45 percent.
The strategy looks to achieve fast and sustainable growth of domestic trade, build brands for Vietnamese goods, and protect the interests of consumers, businesses, and the national economy.

Among the main orientations to develop domestic trade, authorities are set to press on with improving the investment and business climate, form a market order adaptable to the new context, develop domestic trade stably and sustainably, keep domestic trade’s growth faster than the GDP growth, and develop e-commerce into the main form of trading.
This strategy also points out the need for all-level authorities to develop uniform, modern, and sustainable infrastructure for domestic trade that matches the development level in each area, especially rural and ethnic minority ones.
They are also tasked with forming a system of logistics centers, building major logistics centers in key economic regions, continuing to support the establishment of large distribution enterprises, and making and implementing support policies for businesses, especially those trading in agricultural products.
