For example, travelers can sit at home booking services, compare, find the best service, best hotel, best suited to them. In contrast, the value added of the tourism sector also increased much: Business such as tourism, travel, accommodation, information, marketing, catering services, experience, entertainment are affected by 4.0. ..

According to Mr.Sieu, the tourism industry is facing great opportunities such as destination management, large databases, better management of work.

The demand for improving the efficiency and quality of operations of state agencies must be revolutionary. This requires the Department to provide personalized services, regardless of time, space and data source, to meet citizens' needs in an instant; Provide new services using real-time data, such as disaster prevention, smart travel ... At the same time, Industrial Revolution 4.0 also requires agencies and units under the Ministry to provide new services on the open platform, integrating and sharing data between the state and the private sector.

With the fast and strong transformation, cadres, civil servants, employees and workers face many obstacles in changing their habits such as conversion from the use of paper documents into electronic documents; Use electronic tools instead of manual tools before.

Protecting the security, ensuring the integrity of information exchanges in the network environment is also facing many challenges. It requires network security officers, technicians to keep up with the latest knowledge, skills and ethics training to cope with cyberattacks.

Remuneration system as well as maintenance of a number of qualified technicians will face more challenges when it comes to compete with the working environment in enterprises and corporations, causing "brain drain".

Rapid change of information technology will result in outdated technology and outdated system design of components in E-Government system. This brings to huge demand forchange, upgrading and expansion ofE-government system leading to huge budget expenditures. Meanwhile investment budget for this area is limited.
