The digital economy is expected to contribute 30 percent of the national gross domestic product (GDP) by 2030 under the national strategy for the 4th Industrial Revolution recently adopted by Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc.
Accordingly, Vietnam aims to maximise opportunities brought about by the 4th Industrial Revolution, widely apply new technologies in socio-economic development, and creates new technologies to push ahead with growth model reform.
The strategy targets rapid, sustainable development based on science-technology, innovation and high-quality human resources; and better living standards of people.
The application of achievements of the 4th industrial revolution will go in tandem with the protection of cyber security.

Productivity is projected to expand 7.5 percent annually. Meanwhile, broadband internet and 5G services would be available nationwide.
Under the strategy, a number of smart urban chains in major economic areas throughout the country will be formed and connected with smart urban networks in the region and the world at large.
