HÀ NỘI — An online event of the Việt Nam Digital Transformation Summit - Việt Nam DX Summit 2021 officially opened on Wednesday.

The event is organised by the Việt Nam Software and IT Services Association (VINASA) in collaboration with the Việt Nam National Institute of Software and Digital Content Industry (NISCI).

Nguyễn Văn Khoa, chairman of VINASA, said that the event was held with the expectation of creating an annual forum for exchanging knowledge and practical experience, connecting supply and demand in digital transformation, contributing to accelerating Việt Nam to become a developed digital country.

Speaking at the event, Nguyễn Huy Dũng, deputy minister of Information and Communications, emphasised that digital transformation has become an inevitable trend and a new driving force for socio-economic development, contributing to the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic and to economic recovery.

Digital transformation had initially achieved some clear results, especially in terms of awareness and made remarkable progress in almost all public and private sectors and industries in the past two years.

However, Deputy Minister Dũng also acknowledged that there were still many problems that needed to be solved in order to continue implementation.

Therefore, the Việt Nam Digital Transformation Summit will be a good opportunity for ministries, branches, localities and businesses to exchange, discuss and propose solutions to accelerate the digital transformation process in Việt Nam.

"To be able to go faster on the national digital transformation journey, the Ministry of Information and Communications commits to accompany ministries, local sectors, businesses and the community in the digital transformation process," Dũng said.

Also at the summit, VINASA will announce a Digital Transformation Guide Frame for SMEs and industrial manufacturing enterprises.

This is to help SMEs and manufacturing enterprises in Việt Nam approach and implement digital transformation methodically, specifically, and directly connect these businesses with digital technology enterprises. — VNS
