The International Forum Franconomics 2019 with the topic “Digital technology for the development of smart economy and society” took place at the French Cultural Center on October 23th and at the Conference Center of Hưng Yên province on October 24th. French Ambassador to Vietnam Mr. Nicolas Warnery honoured two Vietnamese scholars: Mr. Ngô Tự Lập and Mr. Trịnh Văn Minh, within the framework of the International Forum held in Hanoi on October 23th.

Designed by the Francophone International Institute as an annual international forum under the sponsorship of the National University of Vietnam and partially funded by the AUF, the mission of Franconomics is to create a multidisciplinary space of dialogue, both academic and practical, for universities, businesses and national and international policy makers, particularly with respect to the Francophonie.

Franconomics 2019 is organized in a context where the fourth industrial revolution begins to exert strong and profound impacts on the global economy and society. Digital technologies are today not only a tool for improving productivity and promoting socio-economic development, but also a powerful factor that changes radically the whole human life.

We can say that the new era is a digital era. While hundreds of millions of people benefit from innovative services based on the avantages of digital technology, the latter also poses great challenges for governments, businesses, organizations and individuals. This situation requires a considerable effort on the part of all actors in the socio-economic life to exploit effectively the enormous potential of digital technology and at the same time reduce its harmful influences, to develop a smart economy for a smart society.
