The Viet Nam Information and Communication Technology Outlook seminar to be held in HCM City on September 20 will discuss IT use by businesses in the context of Industry 4.0, opportunities and challenges in investment in IT, agriculture 4.0 and other topics.

Vu Anh Tuan, general secretary of the HCM City Computer Association (HCA), said Industry 4.0 would offer opportunities but also challenges for businesses.

Businesses and workers need to be ready to adopt new technologies and transform their mindset and business infrastructure, and enterprises also need to learn about factors related to artificial intelligence and innovation and develop human resources for the future, he said.

Under the theme Businesses and Industry 4.0: Opportunities and Challenge, the seminar will also feature an exhibition on IT solutions for businesses, he said.

The seminar would be a good opportunity to connect IT services providers with businesses and boost the IT services application market.

Another highlight of the Viet Nam ICT Outlook this year would be a conference titled Smart City 360 Degrees to be held on September 19 by the HCA and the Institute for Computational Science and Technology.

Dr Doan Xuan Huy Minh of the institute said the conference would discuss the difficulties in developing a smart city and solutions and share experiences in creating smart cities.

The 2017 Top ICT Viet Nam awards will be given away at a ceremony on September 19 to honour and encourage ICT companies to enhance their operations and improve their competitiveness to help turn their industry into a key one in Viet Nam and HCM City.

The seminar, to be held at Gem Centre, is expected to attract 1,500 participants, including information and communications officials from HCM City and other cities and provinces, local and foreign ICT experts and business executives. — VNS
