At the reception, the top VOV leader highlighted the specially important significance of the visit by the US group in the context that the Vietnamese government is gearing up the fourth industrial revolution.
He said he hopes that Dell EMC will provide VOV with support and consultations on its communications activities to facilitate Vietnamese people’s approach to 4.0 technologies.
"Dell EMC’s development is admirable and is a model for Vietnamese agencies to follow in terms of applying 4.0 technologies. We believe with this visit and the group’s participation at the Industry 4.0 Summit and Exhibition 2018, Dell EMC will better cooperate with relevant Vietnamese agencies and sectors to help Vietnam leap forward in developing 4.0 technologies," he said.
Ky briefed his guests on the role and operational structure of VOV, noting that it was the earliest established media agency of Vietnam since September 1945.
