The outlook for Vietnam’s information and communication technology (ICT) market is strong at an average growth rate of 8 per cent between 2016 and 2020. The ICT industry (especially software and services) is expected to grow tremendously as Vietnam has emerged as a production centre for both IT hardware and services such as software development outsourcing.
The Vietnamese Government has identified ICT as a key sector contributing to the country’s development and has devised a Master Plan for Information Technology. This plan specifies targets for 2020 and aims at turning Vietnam into an advanced ICT country. The government has pledged to invest approximately US$ 415 million from the State Budget in the ICT sector by 2020.
In this webinar, attendees are invited to listen to the presentations about ICT trends in Vietnam, how to successfully enter the Vietnamese market and about protecting IPR. The webinar was held in collaboration with the SEA IPR SME Helpdesk project.
