Vietnam sets up steering committee for 6G development
Vietnam will soon start developing 6G

Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Manh Hung is the leader of the steering committee; Deputy Minister of MIC Pham Duc Long is its deputy head. The committee's members include leaders of MIC departments and agencies, as well as its state corporations like Viettel, VNPT, and MobiFone.

The steering committee is to study and submit to authorised agencies the orientation, strategy, and policies to create a legal environment for developing 6G standards and applications, as well as information security, production, and commercialisation of 6G devices in Vietnam.

The committee will also collect studies and development standards from international organisations and nations worldwide. From there, the committee can work on forecasts about local and international telecoms market development, and then build a roadmap for study, production, and commercialisation of 6G devices, a 6G pilot, and supporting policies for Vietnamese firms.
