The Fourth Industrial Revolution has been creating structural impacts on global economy and society. Every day, millions of people benefit from innovative products and services, digital technology tools in improving corporate productivity and boosting state economic efficiency.
Vietnam Digital Economy Forum 2018 (VDEF-2018) takes Vietnam, a fast growing economy of a 93 million population in South East Asia, as a business case study to propose specific recommendations for firms, organizations, and professionals from Vietnam and other countries interested in Vietnam. It will be a unique occasion for meeting decision/policy-makers, navigating and implementing strategic initiatives and solutions. The forum is co-organized by the Association of Vietnam Scientists and Experts (AVSE Global) and Quang Trung Software City (QTSC), sponsored by the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee.

The Forum secures special sessions focusing on Vietnam’s digital economic perspectives with international and national keynote speakers from overseas, Vietnam government, and the corporate world. A good volume of dedicated time will be reserved for meeting, networking, and social events to facilitate discussion and partnership among the delegates.
