Like every year, many small traders continue to destroy flowers on the afternoon of the 30th of Tet because they are unwilling to sell them cheaply, and do not want to let buyers “smell” flowers. The situation of small traders smashing flowers near Tet was once brought to the fore in the program “Opportunity for whom?”.
Specifically, before the situational question “Do you support or oppose the fact that small businesses destroy flowers on the afternoon of the 30th Tet?”, a candidate on the program “Opportunity for whom?” I think that from the perspective of small traders, when they decide to discard flowers on the afternoon of the 30th of Tet, it means that they at least broke even, did not have to pay the cost of transporting unsold flowers home, and it is also a possibility. show the attitude to buyers about waiting until close to the hour to buy flowers to force prices.
On the other hand, on the buyer side, over the years, as an unwritten rule, the price of flowers from the 20th day of the Lunar New Year to the 30th day of Tet has a huge difference. Small traders challenge very high prices for those who buy flowers early, that’s why it is not until the 30th day of Tet to buy flowers from some people.
This candidate also thinks that the broken flower pots will be cleaned by the janitors and uncles and this will cause overload for them on the afternoon of the 30th. However, the small traders and farmers are the main ones. people do not have too much knowledge about economy and society, so according to the candidate, it is understandable that they put their personal interests first.
The other candidate said that the fact that small businesses smash flowers on the afternoon of the 30th of Tet with the thought ” I don’t want anyone to take advantage of me.” is acceptable, but this candidate opposes the act of smashing flowers for 3 reasons: wasteful, reflects a bad culture and consumes other resources such as cleaning.
Vu Minh Tri, former CEO of Microsoft Vietnam and now CEO of ASIM, thinks that these are “positive, naive” ways of thinking in young people.
From an economic perspective, the characteristics of Tet flowers are the same as some other products: There is a certain time, if not sold out, will have to leave.
“The plane takes off without people, the seats will be empty. If the electricity is not consumed at a time, it will also be lost. The way people deal with it is to use communication and sales policies to change users’ habits.”
“The price of electricity at noon will be cheaper than during peak hours, so that people who do laundry and cook rice will do it at noon, instead of letting them do it in the evening. This will reduce the peak electricity in the evening.” Mr. Tri shared on the program “Opportunity for whom?“Not long ago.
Applying to the case of smashing flowers on the afternoon of the 30th of Tet, Mr. Tri thinks that the media can be used to educate users.
“For example, flowers have a period from 23rd Tet to 30th Tet, we auction on the first days, and the following days, the flowers are of poorer quality. This will gradually form a habit. Later, if anyone asked to buy flowers on the 30th day, they said they bought flowers on the 30th. Communication will help a lot to change the habits of buyers and help farmers.” suggested Mr. Tri.
