Vietnam Digital Transformation (DX) Day 2021 will take place from 26-27 May in Hanoi with conferences on digital transformation in eight priority sectors, as set out in the national digital transformation strategy.

They include finance and banking, healthcare, education, agriculture, transport and logistics, energy, natural resources and the environment, and manufacturing. Vietnam DX Day will also feature two conferences on digital transformation for small and medium-sized enterprises and digital start-up promotion.

According to the Vietnam Software and IT Services Association (VINASA), the event is expected to attract the attendance of 3,000 delegates from government agencies and the business community. Its agenda will focus on four main contents:

  • updates on digital transformation trends
  • introduction of effective digital transformation methods
  • sharing of success stories
  • connecting supply and demand in digital transformation

On the sidelines of the event, there will be an online conference to introduce Vietnamese digital platforms and solutions.

Earlier this week, a networking event was held by the Vietnam Post and Telecommunications Group (VNPT) and the Ho Chi Minh City Computer Association, aimed at connecting partners in digital transformation.

The programme gathered telecommunications and digital technology businesses to share their visions and goals while providing a comprehensive set of digital conversion solutions for customers, especially small and medium-sized enterprises.

As the fourth Industrial Revolution has exploded, digital transformation has become a vital factor for the existence and development of enterprises, especially in the context of the widespread COVID-19 epidemic.

Digital transformation is an opportunity, but also a challenge, requiring countries and businesses around the world to make drastic changes to keep pace with advancements in technology and science, a press release by the Ministry of Information and Communications noted.

Meanwhile, according to a survey by the Vietnam Software and IT Services (VINASA), only about 15% of domestic enterprises are taking steps towards full digital transformation. On the other hand, most small and medium-sized enterprises face difficulties in capital, so complete digital conversion is not feasible.

At the conference, VNPT Acting General Director Huynh Quang Liem said that VNPT has gained positive results in supporting the government, relevant ministries, sectors, and localities in digital conversion. The group is expected to provide more support in this field for businesses, especially small and medium-sized ones. He called for further cooperation with digital enterprises, which the group pledges to provide with the best infrastructure to develop solutions for digital transformation.

Additionally, with its existing digital capabilities, VNPT is also ready to integrate new solutions into the group’s digital ecosystem. Through its sales network covering 63 provinces and cities, these products will reach customers quickly, becoming a synergy of digital businesses to speed up and promote the efficiency of the national digital transformation process.

HCA Chairman Lam Nguyen Hai Long said that the cooperation with VNPT has helped its members expand upon new sales channels and reach more potential customers. It has also helped digital enterprises in Ho Chi Minh City save costs on infrastructural investment and accelerate digital transformation activities across a range of socio-economic sectors.

Through this activity, VNPT and other tech giants would create similar programmes for Vietnam’s small and medium-sized technology enterprises to develop rapidly and sustainably.

Also at the event, HCA and VNPT signed a cooperation agreement on training and consulting in digital transformation. They are committed to promoting cooperation between VNPT and IT enterprises in the city by providing digital products and solutions to small enterprises.
