At the National Forum on Developing Digital Technology Businesses 2020, Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Phan Tam read a letter from Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc to the Vietnamese digital technology business community.


This is the biggest event of the year for digital technology businesses, technology research and development communities, managers and investors. It is also a place to share, inspire and propose innovative solutions and breakthrough ideas to mobilize all resources to develop digital technology enterprises.

Digital technology businesses need to be a pioneer in research, development and innovation

According to the Prime Minister, the Vietnamese business community in general and the digital technology business community in particular have a very important position in the country’s socio-economic development.
Over the past years, the Party and State have always cared about and created favorable conditions for the development of digital technology businesses. So far, the digital technology business community has strongly developed with nearly 60,000 enterprises, and annual revenue of $120 billion, becoming an important driving force for the development of the business community in Vietnam.
In the trend of international integration and the strong impact of the 4th industrial revolution, besides many development opportunities, Vietnamese digital technology enterprises have faced many difficulties and challenges in research and development of new products and services.
To implement the Politburo's Resolution No. 52/2019 and the goal of developing 100,000 Vietnamese digital technology enterprises under the Prime Minister's Directive 01/2020, it will require the cooperation and efforts of the State, the people and the business community.
The Government will actively improve institutions and laws and develop and implement appropriate strategies, open mechanisms and policies, continue to improve the business investment environment, and facilitate business development, especially digital technology businesses.
The digital technology business community needs to be a pioneer in research, development and innovation, mastering technology, making an important contribution to national digital transformation, and transforming the digital economy to realize the aspirations for a mighty and prosperous Vietnam.
The Prime Minister believes that, with the achieved results, along with promoting intellectual and internal strength, the Vietnamese digital technology business community will have strong development steps in the coming time.
