HÀ NỘI – The Việt Nam Book of Innovation 2019 was made public in Hà Nội yesterday, introducing 74 outstanding scientific-technological research projects and solutions selected from 141 entries submitted by ministries, sectors, organisations and localities.

Many of the solutions have helped enhance the living conditions of the community, promote economic development, protect the environment, improve health care and education, boost agricultural production, ensure defence, save energy, and increase competitiveness of goods, he said.

A database on innovation, initiatives, creations and ideas should be built, along with the multiplying of good models in the field, she suggested.
The NA leader, the President of the VFF Central Committee, the Minister of Science and Technology and delegates presented awards to authors of research works and solutions featured in book.
