In the visit, Chairman Nguyen Thanh Phong voiced his suggestion that the HCMC Department of Science and Technology should launch more activities to support businesses displaying products in this space while propagandizing this valuable site to the general public for experiment.

He added that this Department needs to devise a plan to expand the space and host attractive programs to further introduce the usefulness of the digital transformation process to the community.
