The award has encouraged agencies and businesses to step up investment and application of digital technology.

The outstanding digital achievements have made an important contribution to promoting Vietnam’s digital transformation, said Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Huy Dung.

“The Ministry of Information and Communications has begun dealing with challenges facing Vietnam using digital technology,” Dung said.

He called on ministries, agencies, localities, associations, businesses and the entire society to join efforts in speeding up digital transformation in the country.

Over the past three years, the awards have commended 200 outstanding digital initiatives and organizations, according to the deputy minister.

Speaking at the launching ceremony, Dr. Nguyen Minh Hong, VDCA Chairman highlighted the program’s contributions to the drafting of relevant documents.

The award would continue to promote digital products, services and solutions, notably “make-in-Vietnam” products, in both domestic and foreign markets, Hong said, adding that the award has also encouraged agencies and businesses to step up investment and application of digital technology.

Deadline for entries submission would be by the end of July, via the link www.vda.com.vn. The award ceremony is scheduled to take place in October and broadcast live by Vietnam Television, on multiple channels or other media platforms.
