The scheme aims to improve awareness among leaders and officials of state agencies, organisations, and businesses to accelerate digital transformation; universalise digital skills for all stakeholders; and improve the quality and efficiency of workforce training for digital transformation in each sector, area, and locality.

By 2030, the country aims to provide 90 per cent of people in the working age access to online public and other necessary digital services in healthcare, education, transport, tourism, and banking; enable them to master using these; and complete and universalise a digital tertiary education model for at least 50 per cent of public universities nationwide.

The scheme also targets to train 20,000 engineers and bachelor students in digital tech majors at universities and colleges, while having 80 per cent of training establishments from the primary to secondary level organise training courses about STEM subjects and digital skills.
