The two-day event has attracted the participation of more than 2,000 delegates who are leaders and experts from 17 economies in the region and 35 provinces and cities across Vietnam.

High on agenda are six specialized workshops, an exhibition showcasing digital transformation solutions, and business networking activities between domestic and foreign companies.

Speaking at the event, Deputy Prime Minister Tran Luu Quang said Vietnam needs to properly priorities digital transformation and green transition.

It is also important to prioritize investment in digital infrastructure, focus on technology workforce training, and ensure the availability of high-quality human resources, he said, adding that there should be mechanisms to encourage startups to participate.

Vietnam should effectively exploit and utilize global technological achievements through international cooperation and expert connections to achieve digital and green transformation and develop a digital economy, according to the Deputy Prime Minister.

Addressing the summit, Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Manh Hung stressed that Vietnam identifies digital transformation and green transition as strategic choices which serve as key economic growth drivers and ensure rapid and sustainable development of the country.

The green economy contributed about 2% of Vietnam’s GDP with a growth rate of over 10% in 2020. The country's digital economy also contributed 12% of GDP in the year.

However, the digital economy contributed 16.5% of the GDP and with a growth rate of over 20% in 2023.
