A number of courses are being held to teach people how to sell Chinese goods, including items not officially imported, in Vietnam as a way of making huge profits.

Investigations by the Lao Dong Newspaper showed that with just VND2-5 million (USD87-217), learners will be taught the entire process of importing goods from China to Vietnam via official and unofficial channels.

Such courses are introduced on many social media sites.

According to a trainer of a course, the steps include creating an application on mobile phones to buy goods online from China like Taobao, Tmall, or 1688; making payment via a bank card issued by a Chinese bank; getting goods transported from China through the border.

'Some regular places for gathering goods in China include such markets as Pingxiang in Guangxi, Hekou in Yunnan,' he said. 'We are co-operating with many transport companies to bring goods safely from China to Vietnam. Although most of the goods are illegally transported by unofficial channels, the companies know well how to deal with it.'

Truong Thanh Long, 29, told the Lao Dong Newspaper that she had completed such a course organised by a group of people in Hoang Mai District in Hanoi six months ago.

“After being guided on how to choose the goods and make purchase orders with Chinese partners, I was shown how to transport them to Vietnam," Long said.

"There are two transport options. One by unofficial channel which means goods are illegally brought into Vietnam through borders at night. The second option is via official channels with higher transport fees.'

The man said the course is helpful and he is now starting his business and expect to earn good money.

'Made-in-China goods are very popular in Vietnam thanks to their good designs and cheap prices,' he said. 'So many people are taking advantage of the border between the two countries for the trading.'
