Australia helps Vietnam measure tech contribution to economic growth
Today, CSIRO’s Data61, Australia’s leading digital research organisation and Ministry of Science and Technology (MoST) have launched the report “Vietnam’s Technological change – The contribution of technology to economic growth”. Funded by the #Aus4Innovation program, this is a substantial study that provides tools that can help measure the impacts of technology adoption and creation on productivity and growth.
Researchers have collected, unified and analysed nearly 20 years’ worth of data to develop two modern economic models to quantify the contribution of technological progress to economic growth. This report will be used to help MoST develop the National Science-Technology-Innovation Strategy for the next 10 years. It will serve as a tool to make informed decisions in relation to science, technology and innovation policy.
