Digital transformation will also be discussed at one of the three sessions of the ninth Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) Forum of Young Parliamentarians, scheduled for September in Hanoi, which will see the participation of MIC, Hue said.
The top legislator urged the ministry to play a more active role in preparing contents of the forum, and step up the information work before, during and after the event.
He also asked MIC to work together with the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and the Ministry of Science and Technology to organize exhibitions within the framework of the forum, including one displaying products under the “One Commune, One Product” (OCOP) program.
In his remarks, MIC Minister Nguyen Manh Hung promised to make the best preparations for the event, saying the ministry will instruct domestic digital tech firms to join hands in building the e-legislature.
According to a report presented at the working session, the information and communication sector grew 12.4 percent annually over the past five years. Last year, it posted a turnover of over VND 3.89 quadrillion (USD 165.6 billion), contributed over VND 98.98 trillion to the State budget and employed some 1.5 million people.- (VNA/VLLF)
