It’s hard to imagine clay can be a delicacy or a kind of dessert. But it’s nothing strange in Lap Thach Town, Lap Thach District in the northern province of Vinh Phuc. Though today’s youth no longer eats local clay, many elders living along Thong Nhat Street still say clay is their favourite snack.

Pharma industry picks up the pace in digital. Photo: freepik.com Nguyen Hoang, co-founder and CEO of pharma supply chain specialists thuocsi.vn, realises that as there are no major multi-brand distributors in Vietnam, most pharma manufacturers and brands end up building their own networks, fragmenting the process of providing prescriptions and supplies to healthcare providers. This results in distributors serving over 40,000 independent pharmacies and an estimated 5,000 independent clinics. “The pandemic has forced stakeholders in industry to go digital faster than ever before,” Hoang said. Thuocsi.vn has resolved this fragmentation by building a pharmaceutical distribution marketplace to simplify the distribution system. The platform has an extended network of 700 verified suppliers, distributors, and manufacturers, serving over 7,000 healthcare providers. This month, the startup has secured $8.8 million in its latest funding round led by South Korea’s Smilegate Investment … [Read more...] about Pharma industry picks up the pace in digital
