Sales of electronic, refrigeration and computer products were up last month from May, according to retailers.

HCM City- based electronics retail chain said sales of most of its products had increased in June, but that of electronic products doubled.

Other retailers said sales of electronic products increased by 20-30 percent on the back of a spike in demand for TVs during the EURO 2012 football tournament.

Even large-size TVs of 50 inches and above, whose sales are usually modest, saw demand jump, according to a Ministry of Industry and Trade bulletin on the electrical, electronic, and computer sectors.

But TVs of less than 32 inches accounted for the lion’s share.

Sales of refrigeration products increased by around 5 percent, laptops by 5-10 percent, and tablets by 20 percent.

The iPad 2012 has appeared in Vietnam and is a major factor in the increase in tablet sales.-VNA
