Hanoi (VNA) – The “Make in Vietnam” digital technologies prize rewards players and projects that have had a strong impact on the world of information technologies and contributed to their development. Launched since 2020 by the Ministry of Information and Communication, this award confirms its success every year and encourages domestic digital companies to innovate constantly.
This is a national award that recognizes digital products created, designed and manufactured in Vietnam. Many award-winning products have been used and therefore contribute to the establishment of electronic governance and the digital transition of the country, as underlined by Phan Tâm, Deputy Minister of Information and Communication.
“This award aims to implement the prime minister’s number one guideline on the development of digital enterprises in Vietnam, which was enacted in 2020. This award recognizes the best digital enterprises and supports them in promoting business indoors as outside the country. The objective is to help them conquer the domestic market and export their products and services. Since 2020, this award has created a driving force to accelerate the development of Vietnam’s digital technology industry,” he said.
In recent years, Vietnamese companies operating in the digital technology sector have applied new Industry 4.0 technologies such as artificial intelligence, big data (Big Data), Internet of Things and robotic process automation. .
Many products are used in many remote and impoverished villages, helping to improve the standard of living of the inhabitants. People’s and businesses’ activities are digitized through the universal use of “Make in Vietnam” digital platforms, enabling people and businesses to directly enjoy the benefits of digital transformation. Many digital products have also facilitated people’s access to high-quality medical information and services, as well as remote teaching and working solutions. We must mention among others Akabot, a robotic process automation application developed by the FPT group. This product has enabled banks and retailers to reduce expenses while improving efficiency and competitiveness. DrAidTM artificial intelligence software developed by Vingroup is used by many major hospitals in Vietnam. The Vo so e-commerce platform created by Viettelpot helps farmers sell their products better. VNPT Group’s VNEdu educational ecosystem is used by many schools and appreciated by students and teachers.
“Who says industry 4.0, says connection. Thanks to the connection, we can manage the activities of our students. All student data is stored on the system server and is the basis for effective analysis and management. This allows us to give him advice or career guidance,” says a teacher using the VNEdu educational ecosystem.
Vietnam is one of the pioneer countries in promoting digital transformation. Companies have received financial support from the state to accelerate their digital transformation and have been able to make new breakthroughs thanks to the technological revolution.
According to the latest UN report on the development of e-governments in the world, Vietnam ranks 86th in the world. With its National Digital Transition Program, the country is aiming to rank 70th in the world in 2025 and 50th in 2030. In addition, the digital economy is expected to account for 30% of national GDP and labor productivity is expected to increase more than 8% every year.
The Ministry of Information and Communication has instructed Vietnamese companies to create products and services that meet the needs of domestic customers and the challenges facing Vietnam. Nguyên Huy Dung, the deputy of the said ministry, affirms:
“Our Ministry of Information and Communication strives to identify the issues and challenges facing Vietnamese society today. The goal is to attract the participation of companies in the resolution of its problems and challenges. What business needs most is a market. That is to say, to have quality technologies, companies and products.”
