Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has signed a directive to promote the development of digital enterprises in Vietnam with a target of developing 100,000 tech firms by 2030.
Digital transformation is creating new development spaces – digital economy, digital society and e-government – based on rapid expansion of digital technologies such as artificial intelligence, Big Data, machine learning, deep learning, block chain, cloud computing and the Internet of Things.

This process opens up a great opportunity for Vietnam to make breakthrough developments, quickly catching up with developed countries which have already started the transformation.
The Vietnamese Government was pushing this process and digital enterprises – which adopt, transfer, study and develop products, platforms and solutions based on digital technology – would play a key role in the transformation process, the directive said.
It asked Vietnamese digital firms to take the lead and create a breakthrough in the implementation of the “Made in Vietnam” strategy – an important policy which encourages Vietnamese enterprises to make products instead of assembling, gradually mastering creation, design and production, while creating new services, solutions and business models.
By 2030, Vietnam needs at least 100,000 technology businesses to develop the digital economy, build smart cities and e-government, promote the adoption of digital achievements in all fields and implement nationwide digital transformation.
