An online event of the Viet Nam Digital Transformation Summit - Viet Nam DX Summit 2021 officially opened on Wednesday.

The event is organised by the Viet Nam Software and IT Services Association (VINASA) in collaboration with the Viet Nam National Institute of Software and Digital Content Industry (NISCI).

The summit gathered more than 80 speakers who are leaders, industry experts and more than 8,000 delegates sharing and discussing at 11 thematic sessions focusing on the hottest issues in digital transformation of key industries such as finance and banking, healthcare, agriculture, transportation-logistics, real estate, industrial production and information security.

Nguyen Van Khoa, chairman of VINASA, said that the event was held with the expectation of creating an annual forum for exchanging knowledge and practical experience, connecting supply and demand in digital transformation, contributing to accelerating Viet Nam to become a developed digital country.

Speaking at the event, Nguyen Huy Dung, deputy minister of Information and Communications, emphasised that digital transformation has become an inevitable trend and a new driving force for socio-economic development, contributing to the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic and to economic recovery.

Digital transformation had initially achieved some clear results, especially in terms of awareness and made remarkable progress in almost all public and private sectors and industries in the past two years.

However, Deputy Minister Dung also acknowledged that there were still many problems that needed to be solved in order to continue implementation.

Therefore, the Viet Nam Digital Transformation Summit will be a good opportunity for ministries, branches, localities and businesses to exchange, discuss and propose solutions to accelerate the digital transformation process in Viet Nam.

"To be able to go faster on the national digital transformation journey, the Ministry of Information and Communications commits to accompany ministries, local sectors, businesses and the community in the digital transformation process," Dung said.

Also at the summit, VINASA will announce a Digital Transformation Guide Frame for SMEs and industrial manufacturing enterprises.

This is to help SMEs and manufacturing enterprises in Viet Nam approach and implement digital transformation methodically, specifically, and directly connect these businesses with digital technology enterprises. — VNS
