He affirmed opportunities brought by ICT to Asia and Oceania, which are considered as the most crowded and dynamic regions in the world.

Efforts of the ICT community to warn and address actions causing information insecurity will help inspire creativity and realize the dream of a faster and more sustainable development for a bright future when people can benefit further from ICT, Deputy PM Dam added.

After the opening, eight panel discussions were held, focusing on IT – agricultural restructuring, IT – a new development method to improve the efficiency of public services, and SMAC – a platform for smart technology development.

The summit attracted over 700 senior officials of IT associations and companies from 20 leading economies in Asia and Oceania. It is the largest international event for ICT in Asia and Oceania held by the Asian-Oceanian Computing Industry Organization (ASOCIO) in each regional country annually.

This is the second time Viet Nam has hosted the event.
