HA NOI (Biz Hub) — Management agencies and businesses should work together to promote the application of information, communication and technology (ICT), said deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam.

Dam told the representatives of ICT associations and businesses at the meeting held in Ha Noi on Thursday that the documents related to ICT development had been largely completed. However, the government should choose specific works to implement during each period.

The leading ICT enterprises should be active in participating in designing and implementing overall solutions as well as creating a foundation for other small-scale companies to join the application.

Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Minh Hong said this year that the sector would implement several important policies for its development to accelerate the application of ICT when dealing with the global market.

Hong urged businesses to continue making contributions to building policies for ICT development while enhancing co-operation among associations and firms in the ICT industry.

Truong Gia Binh, chairman of the Viet Nam Software and IT Services Association, noted that with support from the government, ICT companies would make efforts to put proposals into action this year to kick off a boom in projects, launching a new development period for the country's ICT industry. — VNS
