Addressing a plenary session themed "Accelerating digital and green transitions in driving breakthroughs to shorten the process of industrialisation and modernisation to 2030 with a vision to 2045" of the annual Vietnam Industry 4.0 Summit 2023 in Hanoi on June 14, PM Chinh said the fourth industrial revolution, including digital and green transitions, has exerted a widespread and profound impact on industrialisation and modernisation in Vietnam. The Vietnamese government has kept striving to build itself with sufficient capacity to manage development in the digital age, he said.

During the 2021-2030 period, the focus will be placed on actively promoting the strong application of sci-technological advances and innovation; achieving breakthroughs in productivity, quality, efficiency and competitiveness; and carrying out digital transition and green transition, he said.

The 2031-2045 period will concentrate on enhancing the quality of industrialisation and comprehensively modernising all sectors of the economy and social life. In the near future, the effective implementation of the "National Digital Transformation Programme" and the "National Strategy for Green Growth for the 2021-2030 period, with a vision to 2050" is a priority, the PM said.

It is a must to accelerate the process of building, issuing, and effectively implementing the Strategy for Digital Industrial Development; building and deploying the Semiconductor Industry Development Strategy of Vietnam until 2030, with a vision to 2045; building the Law on Digital Industry; actively and effectively implementing the contents of the Political Declaration on the establishment of the Just Energy Transition Partnership (JETP); and successfully realising the Power Development Plan VIII towards reducing and balancing emissions in line with Vietnam's commitments at the 26th and 27th United Nations Climate Change Conferences, PM Chinh noted.

The PM affirmed that the Vietnamese Government will continue focusing on fine-tuning institutions, promoting entrepreneurship, and fostering innovations in line with market mechanisms and international practices.

In addition, it is necessary to make a breakthrough in building infrastructure system, particularly strategic infrastructure that provides momentum for national industrialisation and modernisation, he said.

The Vietnamese Government is committed to actively accompanying and cooperating with other countries and international organisations to push forward this industrial revolution in order to bring peace and prosperity to all nations worldwide, he said.
