Addressing the event, Prime Minister Pham highlighted the important role of science and technology and innovation as evidenced by the adoption of a series of orientations and policies by the Party and the State.

Over the past 65 years, scientific, technological and innovative achievements have left historical marks in many key industries and fields of the country, becoming the foundation and driving force for sustainable development.

The nation has mastered technology and successfully manufactured new equipment, production lines, and types of materials with high localization rates, serving the development of mechanical engineering, energy, support industries, and agriculture.

The national startup ecosystem has flourished in localities nationwide. In 2023, the country had around 3,800 innovation startups, including 11 valued at over US$100 million, 208 investment funds, 84 incubators, and 35 business promotion organizations.

The Vietnamese Global Innovation Index (GII) has continuously improved over the past 13 years, thereby showing its effectiveness in converting input resources into innovative outputs.

In 2023, the country ranked 46th among 132 economies globally and 4th in Southeast Asia, and retained its second position in the group of 36 low-middle income economies.

The Ministry of Science and Technology has released the Provincial Innovation Index (PII) and officially deployed it nationwide from 2023.

On the occasion, Prime Minister Pham also attended an exhibition featuring a 65-year innovation path and books on science, technology, and innovation; 10 years of Ta Quang Buu Award; and visited booths showcasing science, technology, and innovation achievements./.
