Under the program, the proportion of transactions in intellectual property (solutions, process and technical know-how) would account for at least 10% by 2015 and 20% by 2020 of total sales of scientific and technological products and services in the market.

The program aims to renovate procedures and regulations on establishment, registration and operation of organizations which specialize in scientific and technological services; enable the development of scientific and technological services and narrow the development gap between domestic and foreign markets.

National-scale trading floors on technologies will be built in Ha Noi, Ho Chi Minh City and central Da Nang city while the current tech marts will be expanded in scale, organization and hosting places.  

Corporations in charge of evaluating technology, import and export of technological products, technological transfer will be established at universities and institutes. 

The private sector is encouraged to part take in providing technological services, brokerage and consultation services, assessment and evaluation of products.

A contingent of staff specializing in technological and scientific services and market will be developed./.
