Vietnamese Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Thien Nhan says Vietnam has kept pace with global technological advances, introducing digital terrestrial TV services in 2005, one of the first countries within Asia Pacific and the world to digitize broadcasting transmission, and completing the transition process from analogue to digital by 2020.

TV companies repositioning in the digital world need to be present in all platforms to include web, mobile, tablet and IPTV if they are to seize the digital opportunities and enhance their services, business and contribution to industry and society.
