Vietnam is the easternmost country on the Indochina Peninsula and is the world’s 14th most populous country with just under 96.5 million inhabitants. Geographically, the country is comprised mainly of mountains, hills and dense forests with some lowlands. Historically, the country was highly dependent upon wet rice cultivation and also bauxite mining, but Vietnam’s economy has been dramatically diversified. Today, the economy is thriving and it has become a hub for hi-tech industries. The oil industry is also becoming an increasingly important sector. Vietnam has become one of the world’s fastest-growing economies and is expected to sustain this growth into the future.
Rapidly Developing Asian Tiger
Telecommunications in Vietnam are undergoing change thanks to a government programme which seeks to develop broadband infrastructure across the country in order to fuel socio-economic development. In 2016, the government approved a programme to expand fixed broadband Internet coverage to 40% of households and individuals by 2020. Through the programme the government is also seeking to improve 3G and 4G coverage to cover 95% of residential areas to help with the promotion of e-government, e-commerce and disaster prevention services and a selection of online public services.
At present, Vietnam has low mobile broadband and high mobile penetration and 55 million of its population is connected to the Internet. Therefore, significant work is required to meet the challenge of connecting rural areas that are currently on the wrong side of the Digital Divide.
