At the conference


The Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) recently organized an online conference to share and disseminate experiences on digital transformation, connecting with 63 local departments of information and communications.

The leaders of Thai Nguyen, HCM City, Thua Thien - Hue, Bac Giang, Ba Ria – Vung Tau, Lang Son, Thai Binh, Binh Duong and Da Nang talked about digital transformation in their localities in accordance with three topics – digital government, digital economy and digital society.

The stories are about the application of Party Member Handbook platform; provincial digital transformation model in LangSon; the deployment of information system that serves safe, flexible adaptation and effective control of the pandemic in HCM City; AI switchboard solution to advise and support F0s at home; and QR Code travel permit application in Da Nang.

Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Huy Dung said digital transformation is a story of 63 cities/provinces, more than 700 districts and over 11,000 communes.

With the viewpoint ‘success comes from sharing’, MIC built an information portal for 63 cities/provinces to share their stories at

Each article must not contain more than 1,000 words and each clip must not be longer than 12 minutes.

“In the last few years, we have heard success stories in other countries. And now, I hope that every locality can tell success stories of its own,” Dung said.

He went on to say that he expects to listen to stories about topics which were still not related at the conference, such as digital transformation at people’s councils at different levels; digital skill training; the tools and platforms that help localities go digitized; and the use of data to make important decisions.

MIC has asked the International Cooperation Department and Authority of Information Technology Application to upgrade the website to make it more convenient to use so that users just make one click to share their stories on many social network platforms. This will also be a repository of original stories for central and local media agencies to build reports and infographics to contribute to the sharing of information.

At the conference, the Authority of IT Application introduced training courses on digital information to be provided to 10,000 officers at state agencies and media agencies. The training is expected to begin in March 2022. Four major issues would be mentioned in the training, including 1/ heightening awareness about digital transformation 2 /digital government 3/ digital economy and 4/ digital society.
