The Vietnam Internet Forum 2017 (VIF17) will take place at the Hanoi Museum on November 27-28.

VIF17, themed ‘Digital For Good’, will discuss the contribution of the internet to a creative, sustainable and open society through e-governance, open data, smart cities and social network development.

Inspired by the Stockholm Internet Forum which took place in May, the event in Hanoi takes place at the time of the twentieth anniversary of the internet arriving in Vietnam (1997-2017).

The event is hosted by the Embassy of Sweden in Hanoi and Vietnamese Ministry of Information and Communication, along with partners such as Lund University, Vietnam Internet Association, United Nations Development Programme and United Nations Educational and Scientific and Cultural Organisation.

In addition, the Vietnam Internet Association will also hold the Internet Day 2017 and anniversary ceremony marking 20 years of internet in Vietnam at JW Marriott Hanoi hotel on November 22.

At the ceremony, individuals and enterprises, which have contributed to the development of the internet in Vietnam in the past 10 years will be announced.

Also, the ‘Chatbot 2017′ contest will be launched, aiming to connect the start-up community and young programmers.

The event is expected to be a special occasion to look back on the internet’s development in Vietnam, while giving suggestions to further promote the development of the internet in Vietnam to bring prosperity to the nation in the future.
