The Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) introduced technology maps for eight areas on October 9, making it the first ministry in Vietnam to do so.

The move was made as part of the MIC’s third-quarter performance review and set tasks for the remaining months of the year.

The maps provide information about eight main areas under the management of the MIC, including telecommunications, the postal service, publishing, digital government, and information security.

Each map includes a description and assessment of each technology, and infographics show brief information on technologies impacting the area such as the time, development level, impact level, and stages of expectations for the technologies.

A total of 32 digital technologies are applied in these areas. In particular, the circle represents time, the numbers in the circle show the level of technological maturity, the size represents the level of impact the technologies have had on the area, and the colour of the circle represents the stage of technological expectations.

Nguyen Khac Lich, director of the MIC’s Department of Science and Technology said, “The maps are expected to be a tool for state management agencies in their management work, making strategies, building short, medium, and long-term implementation plans in line with the development of technology.”

"The maps will also support units and businesses in making decisions about the application and deployment of new technologies appropriately," he added.
