The topic of this year’s forum is "Digital transformation - driving force for economic recovery and development". “We want to emphasize that digital transformation will be the main driving force for economic recovery and development, with the spirit of Vietnamese digital technology enterprises carrying out digital transformation causes,” Deputy Minister Pham Duc Long said.

At the forum, the Make in Vietnam Awards will be presented to Make in Vietnam products, which are designed and created in Vietnam and more importantly, solve Vietnam’s problems, Mr. Long said.

According to the organizers, the 3rd National Forum for Development of Digital Technology Businesses will have two main sessions to discuss how digital technology enterprises solve problems in national digital transformation and how they can help industries and sectors recover and develop sustainably during and after the Covid-19 pandemic.

Attended by leaders of the Government, the Party, the National Assembly, ministries, localities and hundreds of experts, and domestic and foreign technology enterprises, the forum will be a place to share, inspire, propose solutions and breakthrough ideas, and gather resources of society to develop thousands of Vietnamese technology enterprises.

Deputy Minister Pham Duc Long said that at this year's forum the Ministry of Information and Communications will announce Vietnam's digital transformation goals, and address Vietnam’s problems as well as policies, solutions and support tools for businesses.

"With the support of press agencies, the message of the forum will spread so that the digital and IT business community will have confidence and motivation to develop strongly, to successfully implement the goal: the digital economy to account for 20% of Vietnam’s GDP by 2025. This is a very challenging goal that demonstrates our aspirations," he said.
