That's why it takes flexibility and adaptability, which requires intelligence. Therefore, smart management will be an inevitable trend in the world and in Vietnam. The need to quickly adapt to changes in the economy is essential. Vietnam is a country with a young, dynamic and creative human resource that is closely watched by the Government. These are important factors that give advantages to the transition from traditional to smart governance. However, businesses need to prepare themselves to be proactive in order to transform and speed up the progress. ”

These fluctuations brought about by the negative effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, the US-China trade war, the 4.0 revolution.
