HÀ NỘI — The Việt Nam Golden Book of Innovation 2018, which gathers outstanding innovative projects and solutions in science-technology, made its debut in Hà Nội on Thursday.
The book was released on the occasion of the 73rd anniversary of National Day (September 2) at a ceremony with the attendance of President Trần Đại Quang.
In addition to summaries of 73 prize-winning projects in the past year, the book also lists collectives and individuals who won international awards, along with Việt Nam’s policies in support of innovation.
Addressing the ceremony, President Quang stressed that scientific-technological development and application is the country’s top priority and one of the key driving forces of socio-economic development and national defence.
He said the honoured projects and solutions are significant to Việt Nam’s science-technology as they have been effectively applied in high-tech agriculture, public health care, infrastructure development, renewable energy, climate change adaptation, and national defence and security.
The State leader urged the Việt Nam Fatherland Front Central Committee, the Ministry of Science and Technology, and the Việt Nam Union of Science and Technology Associations to continue their close coordination in selecting outstanding works and solutions for the book.
This is to encourage innovation and scientific-technological application among the public, thus helping Việt Nam catch up with advanced countries in the region and the world in the fourth industrial revolution and become an industrialised nation, he said. — VNS
