The programme aims to realise the orientations and policies of the Government to develop the economy based on digital technologies.

Accordingly, Vietnam will strive to become a leading digital country and economy in the ASEAN region by 2030 and allow comprehensive testing of new technologies in the digital economy.

The main targets include improving competitiveness of the economy, with an average digital economy growth rate reaching 20% a year and labour productivity growth of at least 7% by 2025.

The programme also aims to build a transparent and effective Government in order to be in the world’s top 50 in terms of e-government.

In addition, the programme plans to have all Vietnamese citizens using mobile payment services by 2030, as well as being equipped with the skills to be safe in cyberspace. The ICT human resource sector will be expected to meet the country’s development requirements in its digital transformation.
