According to the Vietnam National Innovation Center (NIC), the 15 best solutions will be able to attend the Vietnam Innovation Solutions Honoring Ceremony in April 2023.
In particular, in addition to prizes worth up to US$300,000, the selected solutions will be implemented in provinces and cities across the country.
The program will focus on helping the SMEs improve their governance capacity, strengthen linkages among foreign-invested firms, and large and small and medium enterprises (SMEs), proactively join the global supply chain, and enhance effective policy dialogue between the Government and businesses.
