French businesses seek Vietnamese opportunities

(VOV) - Four French businesses are planning a September 25–29 fact-finding tour of Vietnam to explore opportunities for developing cloud computing and the open source code movement in the country.

The French Trade Office in Vietnam (Ubifrance Vietnam) announced Linagora, Mandriva, Siveo, and Ubiqube—open source and cloud computing specialists—will meet with local partners and attend a September 25 cloud computing seminar in Hanoi.

Ubifrance organised the tour with the aim of consolidating relations between the two countries’ information, communication, and technology (ICT) businesses.

Ubifrance said the event is part of the 2013 French Year in Vietnam, the framework for a variety of activities marking the 40th anniversary of diplomatic ties.
