Experts say that from now until 2025 is a time for each ministry, industry, and locality to get serious about digital transformation.
By digitally transforming its government, economy, and society, Vietnam will become one of the first countries in the world to leverage digital transformation to meet its national development goals in the new period.
A program with a 10-year vision will comprehensively change Vietnam. The program’s goals are to develop a digital government, improve national efficiency by 2030, make Vietnam one of the top 50 countries in e-government, get the digital economy to contribute 30% of GDP, and at least 20% if each industry’s output.
Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Manh Hung said the program will bring Vietnam on par with other advanced countries.
“If we accept new things, new technologies and talents from around the world will come to Vietnam. New industries in Vietnam will create digital technology products for export and promote new business models,” said Minister Hung.
