In his address, Foreign Minister Bui Thanh Son said the Vietnamese government attaches great importance to accelerating digital transformation considering it a breakthrough and an opportunity to boost socio-economic development. Minister Son said the COVID-19 pandemic poses major challenges to Vietnam’s agriculture and it’s important to promote digital transformation in agricultural development.

'To prepare for Vietnam’s economic growth in the post-pandemic, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will work closely with relevant Ministries, sectors, localities and businesses and expand international cooperation. We aim to boost digital transformation in agriculture,' said Minister Son.

The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development plans to develop an agricultural digital map to connect and share data to serve businesses and the public.
