Quan Van Minh, general director of the company, said that the scheme will meet the demand of developing new norms, catching up with global trends, and preventing violations of the auction law. Additionally, it also helps the government develop a public and transparent auction market, as well as ensure customer information.
Along with globalisation and the rise of innovative technology, it is believed that online auctions will open up a new chapter by allowing auctions to be staged regardless of time, space, and location. Wherever the participants may be, provided that they have access to a smart device and the internet, they can join simultaneous auctions.
Phan Chi Hieu, Deputy Minister of Justice, stated that all auction activities in Vietnam will benefit greatly from online auctions and that it will help building a digital government and a digital market.
