There are a number of platform companies that refuse to do so, because they come from a different culture, but that logic is not right in Vietnam.

In addition, the Minister also said that the Prime Minister has directed economic measures to prevent the inflow of money into false advertising. The Ministry of Information and Communications has cooperated with the State Bank to have a plan to control cross-border payment transactions.

In addition, taxing the contractor on networks like Facebook and Google is a must. "According to incomplete statistics, in 2018 cross-border platforms had revenues of nearly $ 1 billion in Vietnam but not yet paid taxes and if they had to pay taxes, the number would be hundreds of millions," the Minister of Information and Communications said. .
