The young generation in Vietnam will have a bright future thanks to the Internet, former Minister of Information and Communications Mai Liem Truc remarked during a forum in Hanoi on Monday morning.

The Vietnam Internet Forum 2017 (VIF 2017) attracted some 200 participants, including 30 speakers from Vietnam and other countries, experts on information technology and cybersecurity, business representatives, and local university students.

The event was organized by the Embassy of Sweden in Vietnam and the Ministry of Information and Communications at the Hanoi Museum on November 27 and 28, on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the Internet in the Southeast Asian nation.

Centered on ‘Digital For Food,’ the VIF 2017 included discussions on how to use the Internet as a means to exchange information, boost social development, and open new opportunities for the community.

Speaking at the gathering, former Minister of Information and Communications Truc stated that young people have been enthusiastic about the Internet and its various benefits.

The young generation has a bright future ahead thanks to the international computer network, Truc continued, adding that the network is a new economic form that requires the knowledge of young people. 

Swedish Ambassador to Vietnam Pereric Högberg asserted that via the VIF 2017, organizers hoped to promote the openness, transparency, ease, and safety of information access for everyone, especially young generations.

According to Vu The Binh, general secretary of the Vietnam Internet Association, the presence of the Internet in Vietnam during the past 20 years has helped build reliable technological and information infrastructure in every aspect of life, both socially and economically.

It gives birth to a series of business innovations and new economic modalities, while public agencies have also become more open, transparent and accountable.
