The Decision aims to develop a synchronous, modern postal network linking the real world and the digital world, part of the essential infrastructure of the country and the digital economy.


Deputy Prime Minister Trần Lưu Quang has just signed Decision 36/QĐ-TTg approving the planning of information and communications infrastructure for the period 2021-30, with a vision to 2050.

Under this plan, the broadband telecommunications network with large capacity, high speed, modern technology and widely integrated Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure will ensure harmonious development and well serve digital transformation, government, economy, society, and security and defence. By 2025, all high-tech parks, concentrated information technology parks, and research, development and innovation centres will have access to the Internet with a minimum speed of 1Gb per second and deploy and invest in 2-4 additional international telecommunications cable lines.

By 2025, Việt Nam will be among the 20 leading countries in the world in converting the Internet to IPv6 technology.

For data centre and cloud computing infrastructure, large-scale data centres will be formed following green standards and energy zone plans.

The data centres will ensure synchronous connection, interconnected data and mutual redundancy capabilities to promote the development of the big data industry and improve performance and effectively exploit existing data centres.

The requirement is that by 2025, national data centres will be established and deployed as infrastructure to serve national databases and other shared databases according to the provisions of law. At least three national multi-purpose data centres, and multi-purpose data centres at the regional level will be formed.

All Government agencies will use the cloud computing ecosystem to serve the digital Government and 70 per cent of Vietnamese businesses will use the service provided by domestic businesses.

Information technology application infrastructure prioritises focusing development resources in the direction of “doing first, doing well”, and focusing on national-scale infrastructure supporting digital platforms for many socio-economic fields and serving essential social activities in the digital environment.

Development of the information technology industry will be based on artificial intelligence (AI), big data, blockchain, cloud computing and IoT, aiming to strengthen digital technology application in all areas of economic and social life.

The digital technology industry has to develop rapidly and sustainably, shifting from assembling and processing to producing electronic, telecommunications and information technology products and services in Việt Nam, creating a new development space for the country.

The goal is that by 2050, information and communications infrastructure will ensure smart links, based on data and new and green technologies, connecting the physical world with the digital world to adapt and respond to all complex and urgent changes, and ensure sustainable development in politics, economy, society, environment, security and defence.

The planning also aims to develop a synchronous, modern postal network linking the real world and the digital world, part of the essential infrastructure of the country and the digital economy.

The postal network will be set up with sufficient backup capacity to ensure an intact, uninterrupted supply chain in any emergency, and 3-5 regional postal centres will be built across the country by 2030, of which postal centres will have average exploitation capacity of over 15,750 tonnes of postal items per day, and regional postal centres, 5,000 tonnes.
