Minister of Science and Technology Chu Ngoc Anh said in a bid to optimize the national award’s impacts, firms should be encouraged to consider it a performance assessment tool for comprehensive improvement and increased competitiveness.

He said technological innovation and modern management systems are also key to boosting business productivity and competitiveness, adding that the Vietnamese Government will build policies and programmes on quality-productivity, technology transfer, and intelligent assets development.
