Related to the fact that Uber and Grab have continually launched promotion campaigns and discounts to compete with conventional taxi firms, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Do Thang Hai said, during a press conference on Friday, that it is inaccurate to conclude enterprises violate the laws when they have a lot of promotion.
