Digital development, with the creation of growth based on digital technology and digital data as input factors, becomes one of the new mainstream development methods for Vietnam to develop quickly, sustainably and inclusively, with the ability to adapt to challenges in a volatile and unpredictable world.

Developing the digital economy makes people wealthier, contributing to helping Vietnam overcome the low middle-income level by 2025, reach the upper-middle-income level by 2030 and reach the high-income level by 2045.

Developing a digital society also helps people be happier, participate in more comprehensive social activities, and enjoy more favourable social security policies, contributing to making Vietnam a safe, humane and digital country.

The strategy identifies institutions, infrastructure, human resources, people and businesses that play an important role in the development of the digital economy and digital society. The strategy sets out 17 groups of tasks and 8 groups of solutions, to bring digital technology and digital data to penetrate naturally by default into all aspects of business production and the business of enterprises and people's lives.

The Ministry of Information and Communications has been assigned to assume the prime responsibility for promoting the development of the digital economy and digital society; guide and urge ministries, branches and localities to organise the implementation of the Strategy and annually summarise and report to the Prime Minister on the implementation situation.
