He said that the recent boom in online payments driven by fin-tech firms has made Vietnam confident about achieving substantial digital transformation in the near future.
Mr. Khanh underlined Vietnam’s potential for investments in green and sustainable energy, particularly wind and solar energy, and said the UK can become a leading investor in Vietnam with projects for digital transformation and green, clean energy, areas that are becoming increasingly important and have a strategic influence on development around the world.
