NDO/VNA – Vietnam has made progresses in development of information and communication technology (ICT), especially the creativity of applications that Vietnam is developing, said General Secretary of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) Zhao Houlin.

In an interview granted to the Vietnam News Agency, Zhao said Vietnam's remarkable achievements in ITC development, including its national strategy for digital transformation, make the country an excellent example for the region and developing countries in the world.

He highly valued Vietnam's hosting of the ITU Digital World in 2020, and acknowledged its role as a leading provider of information and communication technology and digital economy in ASEAN, as well as an important partner in many markets, from Asia and Africa to Latin America and the Caribbean.

Assessing Vietnam's ability to realise its digital transformation goal in the near future, Zhao said that Vietnam is currently implementing e-Government and this effort has received the support of the people.

Vietnam is a good example of digital transformation, he noted.

This is not only the aspiration and goal of the Vietnamese Government but also of all people. With these joint efforts, Vietnam will surely succeed, he stated.
