Science-technology activities in Ho Chi Minh City have been heightened after the issuance of Resolution 20 by the 11th Party Central Committee, creating a strong foundation for the fulfillment of socio-economic goals of the city.
Vietnam is striving to become a developed nation with high income, full and harmonious socialist-oriented market economy institutions, and a fair, democratic and civilised society by 2050, according to the National Master Plan.
Vietnamese scientists, particularly those who are National Assembly deputies, need to give more ideas and initiatives to the NA and Government serving the building and perfection of institutions, said NA Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue on June 13.
Science-technology and innovation must become the main driving force of development in HCMC, said Mr. Tran Quoc Vuong, Politburo Member and Permanent Member of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) Central Committee’s Secretariat on June 24.
More than 70 percent of the Vietnamese population is working in the agricultural sector, yet they contribute only around 20 percent of the GDP. Therefore, to raise the revenue of this mass sector, beside taking full advantage of the integration process, new technologies must be applied more widely in the whole nation.
It is rather obvious that the better mechanism and law are necessary for the further growth of science and technology in Vietnam, affirmed Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc in a meeting yesterday in Hanoi with 300 outstanding domestic scientists of various fields.
Science and technology in Vietnam have not exploited their full potential, being marked by a shortage of either international research or national products that can contribute to the social-economic growth, said Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam at a meeting held by the Ministry of Science and Technology on Monday.
