According to the statement, last year, the percentage of software investment grew extremely high, doubling the 2007 figure and making up 46% of the total investment in IT.

Meanwhile, hardware investment decreased from 55.5% in 2007 to 39% in 2008.

The shift of investment structure shows that, after stabilizing IT infrastructure, the domestic business community started attaching attention to software application for e-commerce development. 

Notably, revenues from e-commerce have witnessed year-on-year growth. In 2008, 75% of enterprises enjoyed a turnover from e-commerce, which accounted for over 5% of their total revenue. Hence, many of them are paying great attention to the use of e-commerce experts.

Moreover, another achievement of the e-commerce sector is the provision of online public services.

To boost up e-commerce in the period of 2006-10, state agencies are putting forth laws on e-commerce, assisting the business community to expand e-commerce, training manpower, and boosting up international cooperation./.
