The programme will also boost the production of high-tech products and the provision of high-tech services, aiming at increasing the export revenue in the processing and manufacturing industry.

To effectively implement these goals, Tran Viet Hoa, director of the Science and Technology Department under the Ministry of Industry and Trade, said that the ministry would organise activities to support economic groups, corporations and enterprises in key economic sectors to research, develop and master core and key technologies of the fourth industrial revolution.
