Dear brothers and sisters,
Looks like, in Vietnam, all kinds of sellers do all kinds of lying to customers: Jacking up the price sometimes up to 200% or 300% (nói thách); clean vegetable is indeed not clean; fake merchandise; lying about the origin of the products, lying about the quality of the products, deceptive advertising… What should we do to have a better business environment, in which people are more honest?
I think we should do 4 things.
Firstly, the government should ask sellers display the selling price of every item, and thus, we can reduce “nói thách”. Đà Nẵng, the city of tourism, is doing that very well. HCM city should follow ĐN.
Secondly, sharing good information for all people. When we know a trusted shop, we should share the information to our family, friends and all people. We should have websites or Fanpages that collect information on trusted shops. ( only trusted shops, because we don’t need to care about untrusted shops).
Thirdly, education about honesty. Schools should teach morality for children, especially no lie. Pagodas and churches should teach people about honesty, including honest business.
Fourthly, the government should punish big companies that use deceptive advertising.
I think we should do those 4 things to have a better business environment, in which people are more honest.
Have a nice day.
