Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Huy Dung, member of the National Committee on Digital Transformation, noted that digital transformation is necessary as it helps the sector better optimise the market of nearly 100 million at home, along with other 8 billion potential customers worldwide, and improve its service quality.

On this occasion, organisers debuted the MSCS’s information system connected with that of the Government.
