The Hanoi People’s Committee has issued the “Digital transformation of Hanoi to 2025 and vision to 2030” program in order to strongly develop digital government, digital economy, and digital society, which conforms with the National Digital Transformation Program to 2025 and vision to 2030 approved by the Prime Minister in June 2020.

The capital has identified general goals and four specific target groups by 2025 and orientation to 2030, including general goals on digital transformation, digital government development, digital economy development, and digital society development, according to Mr. Nguyen Thanh Liem, Director of the Hanoi Department of Information and Communications.

The city aims to become one of the five leading localities in the country in digital transformation by 2025 and a “Green - Smart - Modern” city by 2030. It also aims to achieve the dual goals of developing digital government, digital economy, and digital society while forming digital technology businesses that will be able to develop globally.

Moreover, strong digital transformation in industries and fields that will create an advantage and force for socio-economic development will be prioritized in order to improve growth quality and the competitiveness of the economy.

Hanoi will also focus on promoting the dissemination of policies on digital transformation and the development of digital government, digital economy, and digital society to enhance digital transformation in order to raise awareness among agencies, individuals, and businesses. Developing a digital society will also help people in the city have equal access to essential services provided on digital platforms.

In order to successfully implement the digital transformation program and achieve the goals, Mr. Liem said it is necessary to receive contributions from all levels of government, socio-political organizations, and especially residents and businesses in the capital.
