Fifteen projects in trade facilitation and e-business received eASIA awards, a biennial awards event that recognises efforts within the AFACT community.


The electronic-bank realisation certificate project of India's Directorate General of Foreign Trade won first prize in the trade-facilitation category.


Viet Nam's FPT Information System Company was given first prize in the e-business in the public sector category for an electronic customs clearance system (e-customs).


Taiwan's CyberSoft Digital Services Corp was awarded first prize in the e-business in the private sector category for a secure mobile payment system.


The first prize for bridging the digital-divide category was given to the APEC digital opportunity centre project of Taiwan's Institute of Information Industry.


The event was organised by the Viet Nam E-commerce and Information Technology Agency under the Ministry of Industry and Trade and the HCM City Department of Industry and Trade.


AFACT, a non-profit, non-political, voluntary and independent organisation, has 19 members in the Asia-Pacific region.
