“Viettel has continued to create value and benefits at a higher level for the Government, ministries, businesses and people. The corporation does not only serve its business targets, but also accompanies the Government in building a digital government, co-operating with companies and people to resolve society’s issues for the country’s sustainable growth,” he added.

Cường said Viettel would build an IT foundation such as Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), BigData and Viettel Pay to help firms and partners develop new products and services more quickly and easily. Viettel has been ready to provide consultancy about opportunities and challenges of the Fourth Industrial Revolution to companies, thus helping them develop a digital transformation roadmap.
