Vietnamese technology enterprises play an important role in leading the national transition and the building of a digital economy and digital society.

This February, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc also signed Decree No.13/2019/ND-CP on science and technology enterprises. Accordingly, technology enterprises will be given exemption and reductions in corporate income tax as well as land and water rental fees, in addition to credit incentives.

Moreover, technology enterprises will also receive support in scientific research to enable them to bring products into actual production.
