The programme was launched in Vietnam from 2018 with free training courses held in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang and Can Tho.

From July 2019, through the collaboration with the MoIT, it was extended with more teaching activities, including mobile class at remote areas and symposiums on related themes. It went fully online starting April last year due to the negative impacts of COVID-19.

The programme include lessons designed by experts in the fields of digital marketing, e-commerce, virtual presence and business management skills.

At the event, Google and the MoIT officially launched a subsequent training programme, comprising 14 categories and 28 online courses on the digital platform./.
