Reflecting on Vietnam’s Journey of Transformation

In 2023, Vietnam witnessed a series of transformative developments in its technological landscape, driven by a steadfast commitment to innovation and strategic initiatives aimed at bolstering its intellectual and industrial capacities.

Among the notable milestones was the issuance of Resolution No.27-NQ/TW during the eighth session of the 13th Party Central Committee, which outlined ambitious targets for cultivating a robust contingent of intellectuals by 2030.

With an emphasis on both quantity and quality, the resolution set the stage for Vietnam to nurture leading experts and scientists in key and emerging areas, vital for steering the nation towards modernisation and industrialisation.

This visionary roadmap outlined a trajectory where by 2045, Vietnam’s intellectual pool is envisioned to be not only robust but also positioned among the leading groups in the region, approaching standards seen in developed countries.

Concurrently, the transfer of management authority of Hoa Lac Hi-Tech Park to the People’s Committee of Hanoi signals its growing importance as a hub for innovation and investment, with 15 foreign ventures and over 111.5 trillion VND (4.59 billion USD) invested, reflecting the government’s commitment to technological advancement and economic growth.

Vietnam demonstrated its innovation in information technology and social sciences with significant achievements. The Information Technology Institute introduced a high-quality Vietnamese-centric translation system for Southeast Asian languages, positioning Vietnam as a leader in linguistic technology. Additionally, scientists from the Institute of Imperial Citadel Studies reconstructed Kinh Thien Palace using advanced 3D technology, showcasing Vietnam’s expertise in historical preservation and research.

Advancements in sustainable energy and healthcare further underscored Vietnam’s technological progress. The successful development of solar thermal reflective paint technology, utilising domestically produced nanomaterials, addressed critical challenges in harnessing solar energy efficiently. This innovation, pioneered by the Institute of Tropical Technology under the Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology, showcased Vietnam’s commitment to environmental sustainability and energy independence.

Moreover, medical breakthroughs, such as the first heart-kidney transplant performed at Viet Duc Hospital in Hanoi, positioned Vietnam as a beacon of excellence in organ transplantation within the Asian region, marking a significant milestone in the nation’s healthcare landscape.

Collaborative efforts with international partners yielded remarkable results in addressing pressing environmental and public health concerns. Through joint research initiatives between the Vietnam-Korea Institute of Science and Technology (VKIST) and the Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST), a groundbreaking water treatment system capable of purifying alum and saline-contaminated water sources was developed.

This technology, validated through rigorous testing in the Mekong Delta region, showcased Vietnam’s commitment to addressing critical environmental challenges and improving access to clean water for its citizens.

Telecommunications also witnessed groundbreaking advancements, with Viettel’s successful deployment of the world’s first 5G transceiver station meeting Open RAN standards. This achievement, accomplished in collaboration with Qualcomm, underscored Vietnam’s leadership in next-generation telecommunications infrastructure and its commitment to driving innovation in the global telecommunications landscape.

Furthermore, Vietnam’s scientific community received international acclaim, with five Vietnamese scientists named among the world’s top rising stars of science by Research.com, affirming the nation’s growing influence in global scientific research and innovation.

Meanwhile, the inauguration of the National Innovation Centre (NIC) in Hanoi’s Hoa Lac Hi-Tech Park marked a significant milestone in Vietnam’s semiconductor industry. Through collaborative efforts with domestic and international partners, the NIC focused on enhancing the quality of human resources in microchip design, positioning Vietnam as a key player in semiconductor research and development.

These transformative developments underscore Vietnam’s emergence as a dynamic hub of innovation and technological progress, driven by a steadfast commitment to advancing its intellectual and industrial capabilities. As the nation continues on its trajectory of growth and development, these achievements serve as a testament to Vietnam’s resilience, ingenuity, and unwavering dedication to shaping a prosperous future in the digital age.
