In the area of agriculture and fisheries, 199 cooperatives can coordinate input and output services, apply science and technology to production, improve product quality, consciously build trademarks, organize numerous activities to support production, and follow the value chain associated with product consumption; they also perform well in member development and grow charter capital and operating capital.

In comparison, the 82 cooperatives that operate in the non-agricultural sector are still tiny and fragmented; they have poor growth rates; inadequate managerial resources; antiquated and primitive machinery and equipment; and low productivity and product quality, competitiveness, and efficiency. This year's first few months saw the closure of 56 cooperatives.

The Economic Cooperative - Cooperative Forum was held online on the morning of September 23. According to Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh, this forum aims to change the mode of operation, production, and business; transform the collective economic model of the market economy; and advance competitiveness and management skills in the information economy.

One of the four major economic sectors of the nation, as recognized by the Party and the State in the Resolutions from the Fourth Party Congress thus far, is the market economy. In particular, the first thematic resolution on the information economy was passed at the 5th Conference of the Central Committee of the Party (the IX term) (Resolution No. 13/NQ-TW, dated March 18, 2002), to assist the market economy in eliminating its flaws and working toward an ever-higher GDP growth rate.

Although the Party and State have established several effective methods and policies for the economy, many cooperative groups and cooperatives (cooperatives) in the agricultural and non-agricultural sectors continue to struggle with the organization of their daily operations. Cooperative groups and cooperatives are still not organizing the implementation of services and goods for members; there are weak links, management staff with low qualifications and capacity; operating capital is low; technology, means, and equipment for operation and production and business have not yet been renewed and invested; low-competitive products and goods that do not comply with the current Cooperative Law.

In the Prime Minister's opinion, the growth of the market economy is a necessary trend and a significant part of the national economy that will require more promotion in the future. Due to the current market economy's numerous challenges, it is imperative to actively alter production processes to establish cooperative economies, with cooperatives being linked to digital transformation in the 4.0 revolution.

For digital transformation to have a practical impact, it must be carried out rapidly, often, and continually, and it must be appropriate to the actual and particular circumstances. The COVID-19 outbreak has been contained, but the risk is still present. The digital transformation, which is connected with an independent and thoroughly integrated economy, will rapidly and sustainably restore the economy.
