Topic: Orientation for the development of science and technology of Vietnam in accordance with the trend of movement of the Fourth Industrial Revolution

Based on the analysis of the nature and assessment of the trend of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (IR 4.0), the Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology (VAST) has made the viewpoint that the IR 4.0 is running and it is the indispensable trend of the goods production and services, digital finance and currency; The government should actively develop and improve the management system, do investment at the appropriate amount for science and technology (S&T) that are priority directed to the IR 4.0; while industries need to share their responsibility in investment in research, development and innovation (R&D&I). VAST has determined the goals and proposed the management policies, the active training of human resource, the investment and development of cutting-edge science and technology sectors in order to approach the modern and effective trends, especially those directly related to the IR 4.0, for the period of time from now to 2030.
