Phong Pham There are many elements that will need to come together to help make this happen – socio, political, and technological. On the technology front there are a number of changes afoot, which will go some way towards helping businesses both better manage this transition and be a critical element in support of it. Smart city development requires close co-operation, so that organisations of all types and sizes can easily pull their information and operations together. This requires a fully-unified and connected IT infrastructure to support such an ecosystem – and the best way of providing that is in the cloud. Helping enable this collaboration, as we look towards 2025 and the roadmap to building ASEAN 4.0, is the continued adoption of enterprise cloud infrastructure by companies both large and small.

Matthew Kuan Which sectors are the main markets for implementing blockchain technology? The financial industry ranks as the main market for implementing blockchain technology, with the transportation/logistics industry following a close second. It is important to note that financial services firms are deploying blockchain to support mainstream sovereign currency processes – not the controversial cryptocurrency transactions that initially thrust blockchain into the spotlight.

The e-government will help Vietnam enhance its economic competitiveness, and make it more convenient for businesses to perform in the country. E-governmental development will become a new co-operation sector between Vietnam and some countries in the time to come. As scheduled, in the first quarter of 2019, the Russian government will assign a group of senior experts to Vietnam to work with the country’s Government Office about specific plans to support Vietnam to successfully develop an e-government.
