Under the plan, Hanoi aims to mobilize the participation of socio-political organizations in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, while perfecting legal framework and creating favorable conditions for enterprises taking part in the digital transformation process.
Meanwhile, Hanoi would continue to develop essential infrastructure and enhance innovation capabilities; train high quality human resources; promote priority technologies; push for global integration and digital transformation among state agencies.
By 2025, the Hanoi People’s Committee expects to complete the development of digital infrastructure as the foundation for the establishment of digital government and economy; Hanoi would stay among top cities in the Southeast Asia in data science and artificial intelligence; develop 5G network for locals to have access to broadband internet at low cost; provide open database to meet demand of locals and enterprises.
The city’s authorities also expect to complete the development of e-government before 2025 and work towards the realization of digital government; establish a number of smart urban areas; develop smart fields and digital economy, and target digital economy to contribute 30% of the gross regional domestic product (GRD); productivity to average 7-7.5% per annum.
By 2030, Hanoi would become an innovation hub of the country and play the role as the connector of a network of smart urban areas in the northern key economic zones, gradually expanding its linkage with a similar network in the ASEAN.
Digital economy by that time would account for 40% of Hanoi’s GRDP and productivity growth to average 7.5% per year.
