NDO/VNA – A ministerial roundtable with its theme highlighting the importance of public services for promoting digital transformation took place on October 14 as part of the ongoing International Telecommunication Union (ITU) Digital World 2021.

At the discussion, participants focused on discussing the pandemic impacts on the use of digital services and contents, the role of government services in promoting digital transformation, and solutions for citizens to be best equipped with the right digital skills for a digital future.

In addition, they said there is a risk of a new digital gap in society, where vulnerable groups without digital devices and skills, such as the elderly, cannot access essential health care and information services.

They touched upon the coordination among Government, industries, and related organisations in miminising digital inequality and ensuring that no citizen is left behind.

Earlier, on October 13, another ministerial roundtable mulled over infrastructure development and the role of the government in digital transformation.

The global digital conference and exhibition ITU Digital World 2021 is co-organised by Vietnam’s Ministry of Information and Communication and the ITU.
