Attending the event, Mr. Nguyen Tu Quang, Bkav CEO also shared with the reporters: “The 4.0 industrial revolution is especially about intellectuality. We conclude that is the revolution of unlimited creation. Unlimited creation depends only on what you think, how dare you think and how you do it. The way must be methodical and must focus on R&D (research and development). Otherwise we only focus on trade to earn profit for ourselves, the story will be much simpler and cannot create such R&D personnel”.
