Cleantech: energy, waste-to-value and wastewater solutions opportunities

Vietnam's energy reform provides business opportunities. It has been one of the key strategic projects of the government of Vietnam, and it has been widely supported by institutions such as the World Bank. The massive amount of municipal solid waste (MSW) produced by the country provides excellent opportunities for waste-to-energy and other waste-to-value solutions.

National grids and relevant facilities need to be upgraded, aiming at building foundations for smart grids to be implemented as a part of smart city model by the next decade.

In the field of waste management and waste-to-value business management of municipal solid waste (MSW) is one of the toughest challenges that almost every city and town has been confronting. The incineration of MSW is still limited in terms of quantity and insufficient in terms of efficiency. The market is open for innovative solutions that can help the government and private companies solve this dilemma.

Digitalization: smart cities and public safety expertise opportunities

Smart cities development is a hot topic in Vietnamese cities planning portfolios. Connectivity and security solutions are building blogs for the future digital services. There are smart city projects and future planning on-going especially in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Da Nang which have also been chosen to join the other 23 cities in the ASEAN Smart Cities Network (ASCN).

Vietnam is in the digital transformation trend. Infrastructure for "Vietnam 4.0" revolution has inspired various industries to be digitalized such as in various manufacturing industries, services in both private and public sectors.

Vietnam has a dynamic mobile and internet market, the country has a large tech-savvy youth population and growing pool of software skilled talent and local companies in ICT.
