Vietnamese government improves readiness to implement AI

March 17th, 2023

Great news for Vietnam! The recently published report on the Artificial Intelligence Readiness by Oxford Insights shows that Vietnam has jumped 7 places compared to 2021 and 21 places compared to 2020. Vietnam now ranks 55th globally and 6th out of 10 ASEAN member countries.
Since 2019, Australia – through our #Aus4Innovation program – has worked closely with Vietnam’s Ministry of Science and Technology, supporting policy implementation and grassroot applications regarding AI. The significant improvement shows that Vietnam is much better prepared with the right tools and environment to make use of AI to improve public service and gain economic advantage.
The Government AI Readiness Index aims to answer the question of how ready is a given government to implement AI in the delivery of public services to their citizens. The index this year ranks 181 countries, up from last year’s 160.
