Highlights of CMC at Vietnam International Innovation Expo 2021

On 9th and 10th of January, the Vietnam International Innovation Expo - VIIE 2021 was officially held in Hanoi. With an outstanding ecosystem of products and solutions, CMC Corporation has once again affirmed its leading position in digital transformation and innovation in Vietnam.

Speaking at the event, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc emphasized that, in the last 20 years, innovation has proved to be an important motivation to increase productivity, efficiency, growth and national competitiveness in the long term. Therefore, innovation has become "the key to success" and one of the most critical "effective means" in the socioeconomic development strategy of most countries and territories.

"Without boldly investing in science, technology and innovation, we will be stuck in the pits of low productivity, low added value and the middle income trap of our own," the Prime Minister said.

According to Minister of Planning and Investment Nguyen Chi Dung, ministries and the Government are committed to accompanying enterprises and individuals to innovate. He also affirmed: "We can be proud of the advancements of the country's technology, however, the existing challenges should not be ignored. In order to overcome challenges and take advantage of new technologies, we need to continue striving and contributing to the development and innovation of the country, thus helping with its faster and more sustainable development."

As a large corporation at the forefront in science and technology of the country, CMC aims to not only become a digital corporation, but also assist enterprises and organizations to speed up their digital transformation and promote the innovation movement in the Vietnamese business community.

Mr. Nguyen Trung Main, Chairman of CMC's Board of Directors said: "Being fortunate to have a digital transformation strategy early, CMC always believes its mission is to create digital infrastructure, services and solutions to help other enterprises harness the power of the digital economy and achieve successes of their own."
