The 4th national forum on the development of Vietnamese digital enterprises in 2022 this morning in Hanoi takes place in the context that ministries, sectors, businesses, and localities are promoting strong digital transformation.
Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam attended and directed the forum with the presence of leaders of many ministries, sectors, localities, and especially hundreds of experts, reputable domestic and foreign technology enterprises as well as innovative start-ups in the field of technology in Vietnam.
At the forum, Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam, organizing an annual digital technology forum is needed because the Secretariat of the Party Central Committee has recently held an online conference with the participation of more than one million party members. Deputy Prime Minister Dam said that he was assigned to orient the national master plan to 2045.
The Deputy Prime Minister said that to make Vietnam become an industrially developed country from 2020 to 2030 with 7.5 percent annual GDP growth, the Southeast Asian country must focus on digital technology development and the completion of many tasks. To get out of the middle-income trap must be like that, but it is not simple, it must have special solutions and strong aspirations.
In order to do this, Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam suggested some issues that need to be resolved, such as the need to change the institution, because of the fact that after many decrees have been made, an information technology project has not been implemented yet. Without renewal, the institution will not develop. He also emphasized on development of human resources.
Earlier, speaking at the opening of the forum, Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Pham Duc Long informed that in 2022, Vietnam's digital technology exports are estimated at US$136 billion, further affirming the role of digital technology in national digital innovation.
