Vietnam is witnessing the early stages of the development of a digital financial ecosystem, primarily driven by the booming digital payment service segment. However, other service segments still hold vast potential for growth, necessitating the establishment of a legal framework and appropriate solutions to drive development in the digital economy and digital society trend.

1. Overview of digital finance

Digital Financial Service (DFS) encompasses financial activities that utilize digital technology, encompassing a range of services including cryptocurrencies, mobile financial services, online financial services, i-teller, and digital banking. These services can be provided by both banking and non-banking institutions. DFS covers various monetary transactions such as deposits, withdrawals, fund transfers, as well as a wide array of financial products and services including payments, credit, savings, pensions, and insurance.

2. Challenges for Vietnam’s digital financial market

The field of digital financial services is relatively new, which has resulted in an incomplete legal framework that has not kept pace with the evolving reality. This has become a hindrance to the development of the digital financial ecosystem. The management and supervision of entities within this ecosystem are still limited. The regulatory environment plays a critical role in shaping the development of the digital financial ecosystem. Although the legal framework for financial services, including digital finance and non-cash payment, has gradually improved, there is still room for progress. Additionally, authorities are adjusting the management of financial technology (fintech) services to encourage and facilitate development.

3. What should foreign investor need to take note when joining Vietnam’s market

– Emphasizing cybersecurity and data privacy
– Seizing opportunities in Fintech and E-commerce
– Engaging with Government Agencies and Industry Associations

4. Conclusion

By capitalizing on the government’s infrastructure development initiatives, partnering with local telecom companies, emphasizing cybersecurity, and seizing opportunities in fintech and e-commerce, foreign investors can pave the way for success in Vietnam’s thriving business ecosystem. Also, Vietnam’s expanding data networks offer exciting prospects for foreign investors, enabling them to access capital, drive growth, and achieve long-term success in this rapidly evolving economy.
