Deputy PM Dam hailed Microsoft’s strategies and commitments in the Vietnamese market, as well as its cooperative programmes with Vietnamese relevant ministries and sectors.
He voiced his hope that Microsoft will adopt more policies that suit the Vietnamese market, which he encourages to use copyrighted software, and help Vietnamese organizations improve their capacity in ensuring cyberspace security and digital transformation.
Dam said expects the US technology company would make considerable contributions to Vietnam’s goals for infrastructure development, including IT infrastructure, human resources training, and enhancing public IT access.
Ralph Haupter, in turn, said that with robust growth in multiple sectors, Vietnam has been attracting the world’s technology giants, including Microsoft. He also emphasized the company’s assistance in education and cybersecurity for the country.
Making its appearance in the Vietnamese market since 1996, Microsoft’s products have been widely used in the Southeast Asian nation. Notably, the corporation has contributed US$22 million worth of software and cloud computing technology, and in excess of US$3 million to support Vietnam’s educational and social activities.
