A meeting was held at the headquarters of the Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) for Vietnam and Russia to discuss cooperation in information and communication.

Vietnam’s Deputy Minister, Phan Tam, said that Vietnam is working to develop a digital economy. MIC is drafting national programs to accelerate the digital transformation process. These strategies will create great opportunities for Russian IT and communications enterprises.

Earlier this year, the government released the National Digital Transformation Project. It shows that digital transformation deeply impacts structure and relationships in the global economy. Replacing manual labour with automation, capital with knowledge and data, and changing consumption habits as well as the behaviour of society.

The project sets specific objectives. They are:

  • By 2030, Vietnam’s digital economy should grow 20% per year.
  • It should be one of the top 20 countries in the world and the top three in ASEAN in the global and regional competitiveness index, respectively.
  • It should be on the list of top 50 e-government countries.
  • Labour productivity should increase by 8-10% per year.

At the meeting, the Deputy Minister noted that the traditional friendship and comprehensive strategic partnership between Vietnam and the Russian Federation can be deepened. He affirmed that MIC has been facilitating Russian businesses to invest and develop in Vietnam.

The Deputy Minister also asked the Russian Ministry of Digital Development, Communication, and Mass Media to support training and scientific research for Vietnam by providing scholarships, exchanging experts, and organising scientific seminars.

Deputy Minister M.V. Mamonov said that Russia and Vietnam had many similarities in IT development. Russia has strengths in the fields of e-governance, cybersecurity, and smart cities, so the two sides would have many opportunities to work together.

At the meeting, Russia proposed several bilateral projects in e-governance; mobile applications, a smart card system in health insurance; electronic identifiers and electronic authentication; multi-functional public service centres based on VnPost’s points.

Vietnam Post Corporation is a state-owned enterprise, established by the state and specialises in the field of post on the basis of independent economic accounting.

According to a representative of the Vietnam Post, the organisation is investing in applying new technical and technological achievements.

One of their projects was to apply the (Internet of Things (IoT) into the management of post offices. At present, the project to equip facilities and build an IoT-applied system for post offices is being researched for deployment.

Vietnam Post has also developed many new IT applications to ensure the availability of real-time information on production activities and to help executive departments at all levels have accurate and timely information. It is cooperating with the Japan Post to learn the experience of gradually bringing new technological equipment into postal operations.

The Deputy Minister, Phan Tam, received M.V. Mamonov, the Deputy Minister of Digital Development, Communication and Mass Communication of the Russian Federation and the delegation on the working visit to Vietnam.
