Themed "Vietnam-Japan co-operation to promote digital transformation", Japan ICT Day 2019 will see the participation of 350 delegates, nearly 100 of whom will arrive from Japan, centring on three topics: Vietnam-Japan IT co-operation in the new technology trend, developing IT human resources for Vietnam-Japan IT co-operation, and improving the efficiency of software outsourcing.

Danang People's Committee expects Japan ICT Day 2019 to foster Vietnamese-Japanese IT co-operation in Danang and other localities across Vietnam.
