The conference attracted more than 200 experts and industry representatives with the aim of devising priority areas and a roadmap ahead of the launch of the C4IR at the Saigon Hi-Tech Park in Ho Chi Minh City in September.

During his speech, Jeremy Jurgens, Executive Director of the World Economic Forum, emphasized that artificial intelligence (AI) is expected to dramatically transform manufacturing operations, shaping the trajectory of technology both regionally and globally.

In particular, the C4IR will serve as a catalyst for further green growth development in Ho Chi Minh City while helping to promote innovation in semiconductor chip technology and biotechnology, drones, AI and the Internet of Things (IOT), he noted.

Vo Van Hoan, Vice Chairman of the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee, pointed out that the development of a number of breakthrough technologies such as AI, 5G network, biotechnology and semiconductor chip technology has had a strong impact on multiple fields, ranging from security and politics to economy and society.

It is therefore expected that the development of these technologies will create favorable conditions for Vietnam to proactively take advantage of the opportunities brought by the Fourth Industrial Revolution, Hoan said.

In addition, the center will provide an ideal location for experts to strengthen ties in research activities, put forward policy proposals, improve the application and transfer of technologies and mobilize resources for priority areas such as green growth or smart city development, emphasized he.
