He underscored that the national spirit must be part of digital transformation, adding that all sectors and businesses are requested to work to raise awareness of digital transformation, speed up the process and develop human resources in the field.
Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Manh Hung said that despite Covid-19, the number of Vietnamese digital technology enterprises and their revenues enjoyed a growth rate of nearly 10 percent this year.
In 2021, more Make-in-Vietnam digital products were created, helping address some current issues and raise Vietnam’s rankings in digital technology.
He called on digital technology enterprises to engage in the development of national digital transformation platforms.
At the event, participants put forth solutions and ideas for the development of Vietnamese digital enterprises so as to contribute to economic recovery in the post-pandemic period.
