HA NOI (VNS) — An information and communications ministry delegation, led by Deputy Minister Nguyen Minh Hong, attended the Global Conference on Cyberspace, held from April 14 to 17 in the Netherlands.
The fourth such conference was attended by representatives from more than 120 countries, territories and international organisations. Operationalising the Seoul Framework, the conference aimed at exchanging knowledge and ideas on strategic cyberspace issues and developing concrete solutions to urgent problems.
Participants joined international discussions on human rights and privacy issues on the Internet.
In the framework of the conference, the Global Forum on Cyber Expertise (GFCE) proposed by the host country will be established. It is expected to be a driving force for building policies on information safety, and will boost initiatives and provide knowledge and experience to member countries, and create a foundation to organise high-level discussions on policy-making.
