According to the online media bernarma.com, Steinar Evensen, Managing Director of Norwegian Conexsus, said that the company is prepared to implement its business plan and aims to turn Vietnam into a gateway to Asia.
Other companies are looking at Vietnam´s IT sector, a few month ago France’s Dassault Systemes, a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management, and Vietnam’s IT giant FPT inked a memorandum of understanding to deliver technological solutions on telecommunications and banking services.
HP Group of the United States has put into operation a software centre in Ho Chi Minh City with a total investment capital of US$18 billion.
If ten years ago Vietnam was absent from the world IT map, the country is now seen as a market holding significant potential by world IT powers such as Japan, the Republic of Korea and India.
In 2010, the IT sector earned about US$2 billion in revenues, a 40-fold increase against 2001, of which the software sector made up 50 percent.
