According to Vietnamese Ambassador to the Netherlands Pham Viet Anh, as the Nethelands is a gateway to Europe so it is easy for a product to enter other European countries once it is imported into the Netherlands.
More recently, Vietnamese litchi and longan were shipped to France and Belgium from the Netherlands and later transported to other countries, including those in Eastern Europe.
Since its establishment in August 2022, Miss Linh has helped four small and medium-sized businesses owned by women sell their products on "webshop" platform.
Miss Linh is expected to develop quickly in the Dutch market, especially in the context that e-commerce has became popular and bilateral trade turnover between the two countries has increased in recent years, reaching about EUR 11 billion (USD 11.9 billion) in 2022.
Although newly established, Miss Linh already has 10 partners such as Vinasamex, Hoi An Roastery, Dinh Gia Foods, Nam Son Group, Real Bean Coffee; Palmania, Tien Duc, Pull's Coffee, Ky Nam Seawead and Mai Organic.
