Achieving the MDGs through ICTs will require substantial investment not only in the form of financial investment but also social and human investment. ICT adoption and acceptance will require a change in mindsets and greater openness to the new opportunities and possibilities that ICT contains. Moving towards an information and knowledge society that harnesses ICT for development will mean people will have to change to adopt these new tools and realize the opportunities they bring. Investment in the young will go a long way to achieving this but senior government and business leaders must lead by example and move the process forward.

The time is now, for Viet Nam to move away from a growing digital divide and begin to creatively seize the digital opportunities that can be harnessed for development and the knowledge economy. Viet Nam has unique opportunities to close these gaps and we hope the analysis and practices captured in this report will support Viet Nam’s decision-makers in achieving the MDGs through ICTs.
