Vietnam IT outsourcingVietnam will see its first IT Outsourcing Conference to be held in Ho Chi Minh City this October, an event seeking to promote Vietnam as an emerging IT outsourcing destination and to offer a business matching platform for buyers and Vietnamese vendors.

According to Lam Nguyen Hai Long, deputy director of Quang Trung Software City (QTSC), Vietnam has “competitive advantages in IT outsourcing” on the global market.

“Vietnam possesses a skilled labour force with more than 40,000 engineers graduating each year from 290 universities across the country,” he said, adding that the government offered incentives to encourage investment in high-tech and software parks.

Despite rising costs in Vietnam, its offshore outsourcing services remain cheaper than that of India or Eastern Europe, he said.

Many technology firms and large multinational corporations around the world, including Intel, Samsung, LG, Renesas, Foxconn, Fujitsu, Canon, Panasonic and others have set up manufacturing bases in Vietnam.

Nguyen Cong Ai, deputy general director of KPMG Vietnam, said with its consistent economic development, strong growth of the IT sector, abundant, low-cost and easily trainable work force, cultural compatibility, and availability of supporting infrastructure for offshore outsourcing, Vietnam is “a promising IT outsourcing hub”.

According to the 2015 report by Tholons, a leading strategic advisory firm for global outsourcing and research, Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi rank 18th and 20th among the top 100 most attractive global cities for software outsourcing, he said.

To be organised by QTSC and the Ho Chi Minh City Computer Association (HCA) in collaboration with outsourcing firms, the conference will be held from October 14 to 16 at The Reverie Saigon (Times Square) and is expected to attract more than 150 multinational companies, Vietnam’s top 200 software outsourcing companies and 20 IT universities, Long said.
