E-commerce in Vietnam
Online shopping growth in Vietnam

According to eMarketer, retail e-commerce sales in Vietnam are set to grow by more than 20 per cent per year to reach $2.08 billion in 2017.

In addition, Q&Me has found that 52 per cent of consumers surveyed used a home PC to make digital purchases, while 47 per cent used a smartphone browser. 40 per cent of respondents also used a mobile app to make their purchase.

Fashion, technology, and appliances were in the top three most popular product categories purchased.

Shoppers drive UK economic growth

Consumer spending in Q2 2016 increased by 0.9 per cent compared to the previous quarter. This is the fastest rate since 2014 and above the 0.6 per cent growth estimated by the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

Figures from the ONS found that this growth was also supported by a rise in business investment.

Additional forecasts for UK and global economic growth during 2016 and 2017 can be found in the British Chambers of Commerce and DHL Quarterly International Trade Outlook for Q2 2016.
