Attending and speaking at the opening ceremony, Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Pham Hong Hai affirmed: “Internet of Things (IoT) technology has the ability to connect objects and people in the real world, mapping those links into a virtual world to enhance the ability to monitor, control, and optimize the operations of businesses and organizations. It is expected that IoT will become an important growth engine that can reshape the socio-economic life in the future. The power of connection should be compared with not arithmetic progression but geometric progression". The Deputy Minister also believed that the successful outcome of this year's specialized event would bring even more practical benefits to not only the security and IoT community in Vietnam, but also to organizations and enterprises which are looking for suitable digitalization and security solutions.
