NDO – A website sharing software and solutions in support of Vietnamese businesses amid the escalating COVID-19 outbreak was recently launched by the Authority of Information and Technology Application (AITA) and the Vietnam Remote Workforce group.

The project is designed to help businesses keep their staff connected while working from home to protect themselves and their community from the spread of COVID-19.

The website groups more than 50 tools which facilitate digital transformation among businesses, encouraging them to move towards a digital platform and ecosystem model.

The project is eligible for Vietnam-based businesses whose tax codes are still valid for use. Further information can be found at https://ict.mic.gov.vn.

Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Manh Hung stated that COVID-19 is spread by contact; however, digital technology is contactless.

He stressed that Covid-19 is helping people rethink many things, adding that it is a breaking point in development and a lot of values and habits will change.

He thus emphasised that the biggest opportunity now is to accelerate digital transformation, develop digital technology applications and streamline all production and business activities with the digital environment.
