Aquaculture is the fastest growing food industry in the world. Seafood suppliers around the world and specifically in Vietnam, still have many development opportunities before the perpetually rising global demands for seafood is met.

ARD 2020 is an opportunity for Government, SMEs, and all parties to share experiences and learn about digitalization, digital transformation and Internet of Things (IoT), assess the situation of digital technologies application in aquaculture management and production.

Digital transformation with the application of both simple and modern equipment and information technology helps to systematize the farming area data, support traceability, environmental and disease management, contribute to reducing workload and increasing accuracy in monitoring.

How to enhance the value and competitiveness of Vietnamese aquaculture products is the top priority of MARD. Digital transformation is a process that requires the participation and coordination of different stakeholders to develop a strategy and specific plan. Besides, the participation of all parties in the digital transformation process will help to maximize the transparency of information flow, strengthen linkage of the supply chain, demonstrate the cooperation of public and private sectors, contributing to the implementation of Decision 749/QD-TTg dated 03/06/2020 by the Prime Minister on the "National Digital Transformation Program to 2025, vision to 2030". The program sets a target for the digital economy to account for 20% of GDP by 2025 and 30% by 2030.
