Vietnam up 12 slots in Global Innovation Index

Vietnam ranks 47th out of 127 economies in the Global Innovation Index (GII) 2017, climbing 12 places this year, the Scientific and Technological Ministry reported on Wednesday.

This is the highest ranking Vietnam has achieved. Science and Technology Deputy Minister Tran Quoc Khanh urged all administrative levels to fully commit to the GII assessment criteria.

The GII concept is new. We have achieved a good GII rank, but it's more challenging to maintain and develop it.
