Visiting Vietnam, my biggest impression is the development and the infrastructure. Seeing the good roads, the architecture, and the transport system, I can tell Vietnam, especially Hanoi, is doing well in terms of development. Vietnamese people are hardworking.
I admire how the communities work hard together to build the country toward a prosperous future. That is the lesson that we Namibians can take back home.
In terms of digital transformation, one of the biggest challenges in Namibia is unemployment. When young people do not have jobs, it is very difficult for them to even afford a mobile phone or some access to the internet, let alone thinking about or working toward digital transformation.
One of the solutions that we are really bringing up is that the government must be able to support young people to have and to get access to the internet and technology.

Digitalization is a big gap between Africa and the world. In Africa, we have to keep moving to ensure that our community and society are developing through digital mobilization and transformation so that we can reach where the rest of the world is.
One of the most basic and big challenges in Tanzania is the education system. Digital transformation subjects are not included in the curriculum, making it difficult for young people to think digitally so they can transform society in the future. We have to make sure that policies in Tanzania change to encourage digital mobilization. As youth, we need to advise our government to change their mindset, to put more emphasis on digital transformation.
This is my first trip to Vietnam. From what I have seen and heard, it could be said that Vietnam has changed a lot in terms of digital mobilization. One thing that we can learn is that Vietnam forms digital hubs that collect youth and take youth ideas and match those ideas with reality. In Tanzania, our hub is being built, but at a smaller scale. The idea of how Vietnam builds digital capacity for the youth wakes us up. We will take this as an example and learn from you in order for digital transformation.

In my country Uganda, poverty is a big challenge to digital transformation. How can we talk about digital transformation when many of our people do not have cell phones or any technology devices? Therefore, we need to raise their living standard so they have better lives and better access to technology.
Here in Vietnam, I see many hard-working people. I met many industrious, business-oriented women who run their own companies and sell the local products of their villages. Many of their products are even handmade but they all look very exciting and have high quality. We had interesting talks. I was inspired by how these women make themselves economically independent and contribute to the community's development.
I also see how Vietnamese enterprises use technology in many fields, from healthcare to logistics, which is inspiring and exciting for me. Uganda can learn a lot from Vietnam in terms of developing local products and developing the economy to create a basis for digital transformation.
