However, the process of socio-economic recovery after the Covid-19 epidemic and the implementation of industrialization and modernization on the basis of Industry 4.0 are facing major obstacles.

That is a growth model that is not based much on science, technology and innovation; economic restructuring associated with growth model innovation is still slow; the autonomy of the economy is still low; still heavily dependent on the outside; etc. Industrial development has not met the requirements of industrialization and modernization, mainly developing according to short-term goals, lacking in sustainability.
