The Vietnam International Conference on Advanced Technologies for Communications (ATC 2019) took place in Hanoi, earlier this week.

The event is a forum for the exchange of scientific and technological information among Vietnamese and international scientists and engineers in electronics, communications, and related areas. It aimed at gathering their high-quality research contributions.

The conference featured prominent speakers as well as papers by top researchers from all over the world.

Addressing the event, the Deputy Minister of Information and Communications, Pham Hong Hai, said that smart cities and e-government are the areas that Vietnam is interested in investing in.

To quickly become a digital country, Vietnam needs to exchange ideas and learn from experiences from international experts and scientists, especially in the field of telecommunications and information technology.

At the three-day Vietnam International Conference on Advanced Technologies for Communications, organisers held regular tracks, specials sessions, and workshops. Additionally, a number of tutorial sessions were scheduled for a day before the conference started.

There were about 70 reports on seven main topics: 5G networks and applications; intelligent transport systems; integrated networks; electronics; antennas and radio transmissions; signal processing and microengineering.

According to the organising board, ATC 2019 received 125 presentations from more than 420 speakers from 26 countries around the world.

On the sidelines of the seminar were product display booths introducing new technologies by technology groups.

This year’s event featured the participation of over 200 delegates from 26 countries, representatives of ministries, universities, academies, research institutes, corporations, and domestic and foreign enterprises.

It was co-organised by the Radio & Electronics Association of Vietnam (REV), the IEEE Communications Society (IEEE ComSoc), and the University of Transport and Communications (UTC).

Earlier this month, Vietnam held the Industry 4.0 Summit 2019 and international exposition.

Over 2,500 government leaders and representatives from embassies, international organisations, localities, and businesses attended the event.

The head of the Economic Commission, during the event, said that digital technology has made significant changes to almost every sector, including production, business, social life, national defence, and security.

Over 40 countries and territories globally, including those from developing nations, have issued strategies and action plans relating to the impending wave of Industry 4.0 technology.

The Vietnamese government also released its National Digital Transformation Project earlier this year.

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.

Despite this, the nation’s active participation in Industry 4.0 remains low due to inadequate institutions and policies. There are currently no legal mechanisms in place for a digital economy, or the pilot implementation of new Industry 4.0 products, business models, or services.

The country has yet to develop a national standard system to be applied when developing Industry 4.0 technologies.

It is essential to clarify the specific mechanisms, policies, and recommendations towards the effective implementation of the Politburo’s guidelines on Industry 4.0.
