This research aims to analyze the impacts of digitalization on the global value chains participation of Vietnam manufacturing firms. The data of this study were extracted from Annual Enterprises Survey (AES) and Technology and Competitiveness Survey (TCS) collected annually of manufacturing firms from 2012 to 2018 by General Statistics Office.  The results indicated that digitalization enhanced the participation in global value chains of manufacturing firms in Vietnam. Furthermore, compared to their counterparts in high-tech industries, firms that operate in low-tech industries tend to better leverage digitalization to integrate themselves into global value chains.

Keywords: Digitalization, global value chains, information communication technologies, manufacturing firms, Sâm Ngọc Linh (Panax vietnamensis Ha et Grushv.)

Tóm tắt

Mục đích nghiên cứu của bài viết là phân tích ảnh hưởng của số hóa lên tới khả năng tham gia chuỗi giá trị toàn cầu của doanh nghiệp ngành sản xuất tại Việt Nam. Số liệu trong nghiên cứu được chiết ra từ bảng Điều tra doanh nghiệp (AES) do Tổng cục Thống kê thu nhập hàng năm từ năm 2012 đến 2018 kết hợp với dữ liệu Điều tra năng lực công nghệ của doanh nghiệp ngành sản xuất (TCS). Kết quả cho thấy số hóa làm tăng khả năng doanh nghiệp ngành này tham gia vào chuỗi giá trị toàn cầu. Hơn nữa, các doanh nghiệp thuộc nhóm ngành công nghệ thấp lại có khả năng chuyển hóa lợi ích công nghệ số làm động lực tham gia vào chuỗi tốt hơn hẳn so với doanh nghiệp ở ngành công nghệ cao.

Từ khóa: công nghệ thông tin, số hóa, chuỗi cung ứng toàn cầu, doanh nghiệp ngành sản xuất, Việt Nam
