Addressing the launch ceremony, Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Manh Hung said that the organisation of the award aims to materialise Government Directive No.01, issued on January 14, 2020, on promoting the development of digital technology enterprises.

“The biggest prize of the award is that the MIC will accompany businesses in promoting market connection, building a favourable legal framework, and connecting investors at home and abroad in order to develop Vietnamese digital products,” Minister Nguyen Manh Hung emphasised.

The award is expected to encourage digital technology enterprises to research and create digital technology products and honour outstanding products with contributions to the development of the e-government, digital economy and digital society in addition to promoting “Make in Vietnam” digital products to businesses and the people of Vietnam.

The awards will cover five categories including excellent digital foundation, excellent digital products, outstanding digital solutions, the narrowing of the digital gap, and potential digital products.

All enterprises operating in Vietnam can apply for the awards from August 20 to October 20, 2020, through the online address makeinvietnam.mic.gov.vn.

Digital products and solutions that win the award will have the right to use the brand identity of “Make in Vietnam” and be consulted and supported by the MIC to commercialise their products and solutions.
