Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology continues to lead the DTI 2022 digital transformation ranking in the block of ministerial and ministerial-level agencies with public services

At the 6th meeting of the National Committee on Digital Transformation, chaired by Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh, on the afternoon of July 12, 2023 in Hanoi, the Ministry of Information and Communications announced the Report on the ministerial and provincial Digital Transformation Index in 2022 (DTI 2022). According to the ranking results, in 2022, Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology (VAST) continues to rank first in terms of digital transformation among ministerial and ministerial-level agencies that do not provide public services. This is the second year in a row that VAST leads in the DTI digital conversion ranking.

DTI is a set of ministerial, provincial and national digital transformation index to help monitor and evaluate in a substantive, objective and fair way the results of the annual digital transformation implementation of ministries, sectors, provinces and centrally-run cities, and the whole country during the implementation process. The DTI 2022 report provides an overall picture of Vietnam's digital transformation in 2022. The assessment object focuses on three blocks: (1) Blocks of central-governed cities and provinces; (2) Blocks of ministerial and ministerial-level agencies (with public services); and (3) Block of ministerial and ministerial-level agencies (no public services).

According to the newly released DTI 2022 assessment results, the national digital transformation index for 2022 is 0.71. Compared to 2021, the growth rate of the national digital conversion index in 2022 slows down. However, the components of digital government, digital economy and digital society still maintain high growth rates, from 45% to 55%. In which, for ministerial and ministerial-level blocks that do not provide public services, VAST ranks first in DTI with a value of 0.4813, up from 2021 (0.4736); the second place belongs to the State Capital Management Committee and the third place belongs to Vietnam Television.

The results of the assessment of the DTI index in 2022 show that the VAST's leadership and Digital Transformation Steering Committee have seriously and effectively implemented the "National Digital Transformation Program to 2025, with orientation to 2030" issued by the Government. Being rated as the top among ministerial and ministerial-level agencies that do not provide public services is especially meaningful in the context that investment funding for digital transformation infrastructure and human resources at VAST is still low.

The ranking of DTI is also a scientific basis for building the VAST's digital transformation and development strategy and plan, thereby creating conditions for affiliated units to monitor the index and component criteria for digital transformation of their agencies and units, and improve the quality and efficiency of digital transformation in line with the general requirements of VAST.
