To reach the targets set under the National Digital Transformation Program and Project 06, more work needs to be done, he said, stressing drastic and concerted instructions from the central to grassroots levels would help deal with bottlenecks in the implementation.

The PM asked participants to identify key tasks and breakthrough solutions during the remaining months of this year and beyond.

Focus should be made on developing digital economy to boost economic growth, increase the connection and integration on digital platforms and database, ensure cyber security and safety, raise the efficiency of online public services, and push ahead with administrative reform.
