As openGov Asia reported, Vietnam’s digital technology sector has undergone a profound metamorphosis, experiencing a remarkable surge in both the number of companies and revenue streams. Minister of Information and Communications, Nguyen Manh Hung, revealed this impressive growth, citing a 30% rise in the count of digital technology firms and an astounding 32% increase in industry revenue since 2019.

Speaking at the fifth national forum on the development of digital technology businesses in Quang Ninh province, Minister Hung underscored the sector’s strides over the past half-decade. Particularly noteworthy is the escalating share of locally produced ‘Make-in-Vietnam’ products within the industry, climbing from 21% to an encouraging 29%.

This transformation in Vietnam’s digital technology landscape mirrors the nation’s commitment to technological advancement, as discussed in the 2023 Annual Conference on Strategy for Developing Science, Technology, and Innovation until 2030. The exponential growth in the digital technology sector aligns with the broader agenda of leveraging innovation and scientific progress to steer Vietnam toward a tech-savvy future.
