Viet Nam’s software industry and investment environment will be the featured topics at a Việt Nam IT Outsourcing Conference held on October 19-20 at the convention centre at Quang Trung Software City in HCM City’s District 12.

With a fast-growing economy and a large pool of talent for the engineering workforce, Viet Nam is becoming Asia’s new technology hub, according to organisers of Quang Trung Software City, Investment & Trade Promotion Centre of HCM City, and Viet Nam IT Outsourcing Alliance.

In the past few years, giants like Intel, Samsung, LG, Foxconn, Alcatel-Lucent, Avaya, Bosch, NTT and others have moved their high-tech operations and outsourcing to Viet Nam.

Viet Nam has moved from being an unknown destination to an emerging market for software outsourcing, the organisers said.

The conference is expected to promote the image of Viet Nam as an attractive destination for IT services, while expanding the search for clients and partners for domestic enterprises.

It will help to create an effective business matching platform for buyers and Vietnamese IT outsourcing vendors.

Presentations about human resources, education and training, the labour market and infrastructure will also be held at the conference.

More than 150 multi-national and high-tech companies from over 20 countries are expected to attend, along with 250 top offshore software outsourcing companies in Viet Nam and 20 IT universities. —VNS
