The Vietnamese Ministry of Information and Communications on Friday held a press conference announcing Vietnam will for the first time co-host the virtual International Telecommunications Union (ITU) Digital World 2020 event in October.

Ministers of ITU member countries, along with delegates representing international agencies, foreign experts on ICT and the digital economy as well as leading tech companies are expected to attend the three-day event, which kicks off on October 20.

Based on the proposal of Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Manh Hung, the global-scale event will be held online following the effects of COVID-19.

The forum will include seminars and discussions on such topics as digital technology-related development in Vietnam and a virtual exhibition attended by national pavilions of leading technology corporations and countries across the globe.

“The cooperation with ITU in organizing the Digital World 2020 forum and exhibition makes a significant contribution to enhancing [Vietnam]'s image [as a country] with fast and dynamic developments in telecommunications and information technology,” said Phan Tam, Deputy Minister of Information and Communication.

Additionally, Tam spoke highly of the opportunity that the ITU Digital World event offers to Vietnamese businesses in terms of market expansion and business interaction, which help boost Vietnam’s international integration.
