In the national development orientations for the period 2021 – 2030 mentioned in the draft Document to be submitted to the XIII Congress of the Party has the content: “Promote the transformation of the number of countries; develop digital economy on the basis of science and technology (science and technology), innovate, improve productivity, quality, efficiency and competitiveness of the economy ”.
This orientation is given in the context of the fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0) strongly developing, creating a breakthrough in many fields, creating both opportunities and challenges for all countries and peoples. .
Innovation is a highlight of the XIII Congress
Prof.Dr. Phung Huu Phu, Standing Vice Chairman of the Central Theoretical Council, said that with a sharp mindset, over the years, the Party and State have led and directed all levels and branches to promote application and development. Science and technology, innovation, research, grasp, improve access capacity and actively participate in Industry 4.0.
Especially on September 27, 2019, the Politburo issued Resolution No. 52 on a number of guidelines and policies to actively participate in the Industry 4.0.
|Vietnam will continue to give priority to promoting innovation in digital technology development, implementing digital transformation in the fields of economy, society, governance …|
This Resolution outlines 4 guiding points, which emphasizes: “Actively and actively participating in the Industry 4.0 is an objective indispensable requirement; is a mission of a particularly important strategic significance, both urgent and long-term for both the political system and the whole society … considering it a breakthrough solution with appropriate steps and roadmaps, as an opportunity to Vietnam makes a breakthrough in socio-economic development ”.
“The sharp thinking as well as the spirit of the Politburo’s Resolution 52 have been affirmed, enhanced in the draft document submitted to the XIII Congress, and innovation can be seen as a highlight of the Congress. “, Standing Vice Chairman of Central Theoretical Council said.
According to Prof.Dr. Phung Huu Phu, innovating with the philosophy of “nothing is impossible” is an important attribute of Industry 4.0, reflecting the common thinking and development method of all humanity.
In the context of increasingly direct and extensive international integration, Vietnam needs to approach and absorb the quintessence of human culture, new intellectual values, and successful experiences of the world to move forward at the same time. great.
“Innovation must be done at the same time, synchronously both in thinking and acting, to renew the way of thinking, doing, thinking, especially economic thinking, working style, reform of organization and staff… ”, Prof.Dr. Phung Huu Phu said.

In practical activities, innovation must be comprehensively deployed in fields with many synchronous, centralized and key solutions, with carefully calculated, scientific and appropriate roadmap and steps. suitable with the actual conditions of the country; avoid impatience, willpower leading to adventurousness, adventure, or indifference, hesitation, reluctance, fear of suffering, delay, missed opportunities for growth.
In the coming time, Vietnam should give priority to promoting innovation in digital technology development, implementing digital transformation in the fields of economy, society, governance …, gradually forming digital economy, commune. Assembly, digital government, creating new values and new synergy for the country.
To do this, according to the Standing Vice Chairman of the Central Theoretical Council, cadres and Party members, especially the contingent of strategic-level cadres, the heads of the Party committees and authorities at all levels must go first. style, set an example, dare to think, dare to do, dare to break through for a common cause. The team of intellectuals and business people plays a pivotal role in labor and creativity. Along with that, it is necessary to encourage and promote the role of the subject and the great creativity of the people; to form a Vietnamese innovation start-up ecosystem.
“The only path” forced Vietnam to go through
Concerned about the issue of digital transformation, in the draft document submitted to the XIII Congress, Prof.Dr. Nguyen Quang Thuan, Vice Chairman of the Central Theoretical Council, said that compared to the previous revolutions, Industry 4.0 developed exponentially. Technological breakthroughs take place in a variety of areas with fast-paced, interactive driving, creating a world that is digitized, automated, and becoming increasingly efficient, intelligent.
Industry 4.0 takes place on the basis of digital technology with the breakthrough of Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), big data processing, cloud computing ) and other technologies that support hyperlink performance.
“If we do not make good use of this revolution, the danger of falling behind will exist,” warned Mr. Thuan.
According to Prof.Dr. Nguyen Quang Thuan, although over the past time, the Party, the Government and the political system from central to local level have been very active, actively participating in the Industrial Revolution 4.0, but the level of active participation is still limited. .
Therefore, in the term of the XIII Congress, it is necessary to have an overall and drastic policy from the central to local levels and ministries, branches and businesses to actively participate in the Industry 4.0, creating a breakthrough. break in the country development next time.
“In Vietnam, 68.7% of the population (mostly young people) have access to the Internet, more than 71.3% of households have access to the Internet; Nearly 62.6 million mobile subscribers use data (according to the Vietnam ICT White Paper 2020) … Only 1% of them reach the level of technology experts or become a supplier or enterprise. In the virtual world, Vietnam has more 4.0 motivation, promising to create hundreds of billions of dollars each year ”, Prof. Dr. Nguyen Quang Thuan analyzed.
In order to successfully catch up with the Industrial Revolution 4.0, Mr. Thuan noted, it is necessary to develop a specific and comprehensive strategy, and at the same time obtain consensus for implementation from the central to local levels.
“If Vietnam makes good use of opportunities and overcomes the challenges, Vietnam will be able to narrow the development gap with more developed countries and soon realize its goal of becoming an industrialized country in a modern direction. . If on the contrary, the development gap with other countries will continue to increase ”, said Vice Chairman of Central Theoretical Council.
Also appreciated the new high point in the draft XIII Congress Document when referring to the role of science and technology, which is not only emphasizing the development and application of science and technology but also uphold the requirement of “innovation”, Assoc. Dr. Tran Quoc Toan, Member of the Central Theoretical Council analyzed: “This is as a central orientation of the development and application of science and technology to meet the requirements of the modernization of industrialization in the context of Industry 4.0 is accelerating, with innovative content at a very high level such as AI, robots, IoT, digital economy …
Hidden within strategic competitions are the competition on artificial intelligence, high technology. Those who grasp the possession of artificial intelligence and high technology will grasp the destiny of development.
Assoc.Prof.Dr. Tran Quoc Toan also noted that the Industry 4.0 will have a great impact on all aspects and all fields of our country. Therefore, it is necessary to have appropriate strategies and policies to exploit and successfully take advantage of opportunities and effectively respond to difficulties and challenges.
When moving to a model of in-depth development, the development of knowledge economy, digital economy and creativity has become the most important driving force. Growth and development must be the main result of increased labor productivity, increased value added based on the application of science and technology, especially high technology.
“It can be said that this is a” unique path “, forcing Vietnam to go through if it wants to develop quickly and sustainably. We must consider innovation, promoting the development and application of science and technology, especially high technology, as a strategic breakthrough ”, affirmed by Assoc.
Factors determining competitiveness in the future
In terms of industry management practices, Minister of Industry and Trade Tran Tuan Anh emphasized that Industry 4.0 is essentially the trend of digitizing traditional production and manufacturing methods. In the past, only some production stages were automated by the application of information technology, but lately, the trend to automate production has taken place on a large scale. The application of information and communication technologies to manufacturing industries on a large scale is blurring the lines between the real and virtual worlds, known as interoperable manufacturing systems. cooperation.
Industry 4.0 has changed the traditional value chain. Today, with the help of big data, identifying market trends becomes much easier, faster and more accurate. As a result, the production process is optimized, reducing waste in production costs.
In the traditional value chain model, the amount of inventory is always specified at a certain rate, but with the support of Industry 4.0, the inventory is optimized in real time, thereby, the business optimize working capital demand, cost and improve the efficiency of production and business activities.
Similarly, in the logistics segment, freight is also easier, increasing accuracy, cutting costs. Sales stage also has many changes from the impact of Industry 4.0.
“All these changes can only take place in a society where all information and data are digitized and processed to make big data useful and meaningful to users”, Minister Tran Tuan Anh summarized.
“Industry 4.0 or more accurately, digitalization has fundamentally changed the global production system, completely changing the way people live, work and connect with others. Digitalization also creates new businesses and industries, changing traditional business models and reshaping the global economy. Application of big data, real-time management (real-time), IoT, e-commerce … is present at every stage of the value chain. Data and information play an increasingly important role. Owning and accessing accurate information at a fast speed will be one of the determining factors for competitiveness in the future ”, the head of Industry and Trade confirmed.
One of the guiding views clearly stated in the draft Document to be submitted to the XIII Congress is promoting innovation, strong application of science and technology, especially the achievements of the fourth industrial revolution. , creating a new driving force for the country’s rapid and sustainable development.
