Deputy Minister Nguyen Minh Hong said that the Ministry of Information and Communications has set a target and quantified the digital conversion which will contribute 20-30% to GDP. State units, businesses, research institutes, and training institutions will be the ones that need the most powerful number conversion.
However, there are still regulations on state management that have not created favorable conditions, sometimes creating barriers to digital technology development and domestic transformation. The MIC is trying to abandon policies that create “reverse sponsorship”, which keeps enterprises from providing cross-border digital content unrestricted, while domestic enterprises face difficulties.
