Also by 2025, the province targets to build broadband internet infrastructure in communes, wards, and towns, basically complete digital transition at public agencies, and get the local smart city planning done. By 2030, it aims at ensuring 5G network coverage for locals to enjoy high-speed internet at a low cost.

To actively join the revolution, Hoa Binh prioritises breakthroughs in IT application, digital infrastructure development, and the building of smart agriculture, tourism and urban areas, among others.

The local infrastructure basically meets requirements for management and IT application, with all public agencies having internal networks and connected to broadband internet services.

The province has encouraged its residents to engage in the One Commune One Product programme, register for trademark protection of their farm produce, and expand production following the VietGap standards.

In the medical sector, 100 percent of local hospitals have installed applications for data management that link with the national healthcare data system.
