AIC Statement on Vietnam’s Internet Services Mgt Decree No. 72

Asia Internet Coalition (AIC) statement on Vietnam’s Decree No. 72/2013/ND-CP of the Government Management, supply and use of Internet services and online information

It is unfortunate that the Vietnamese government has decided to take a restrictive policy approach towards the management of the internet. We are disappointed with the Vietnam Internet Management Decree that was recently passed by the Government of Vietnam. We believe that the decree will negatively affect Vietnam’s Internet ecosystem. In the long term, the Decree will stifle innovation and discourage businesses from operating in Vietnam, thereby hindering Vietnam’s goal to establish itself as an advanced competitive ICT nation.
