The VDEF 2018, whose theme is “Challenges and strategic solutions for small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the Fourth Industrial Revolution,” will take place next Thursday, November 1, at the Rex Hotel in District 1, HCMC.
The forum is co-sponsored by the Association of Vietnam Scientists and Experts, and Quang Trung Software City, as well as by the HCMC People’s Committee. Some 20 policy makers and leading experts at home and abroad from the digital economy industry, together with 500 guests from ministries, organizations and enterprises, are expected to join this event.
The Fourth Industrial Revolution has been impacting the structures that make up the foundations of the global economy and society. Every day, millions of people benefit from innovative products and services, as well as digital technology tools, to improve corporate productivity and boost the efficiency of the State’s economy, according to the organizers.
The VDEF-2018 takes Vietnam, a fast growing economy with a population of 93 million in South East Asia, as a case study to put forward specific recommendations for firms, organizations, and professionals from Vietnam and other countries interested in Vietnam.
The event aims to provide a platform for leading experts, policymakers and enterprises to share their strategic visions, practical experiences from pioneers, and the trends of indispensable movement in the digital economy, as well as to evaluate current situations, challenges, and opportunities related to this economy.
The forum will feature four major sessions, including the pathway to the Fourth Industrial Revolution for Vietnam; the impact of digital technology upon SMEs’ business strategies; the application of digital technology in improving SMEs’ competitiveness; and digitalized services supporting SMEs.
