The Hanoi Electronics Corporation (Hanel) will start construction of a 35 million USD software park in Hanoi’s outlying district of Long Bien in the first quarter of the year.

Covering a land area of 312,000 sq. m, the park will include a software outsourcing centre, an e-trade centre and a programmer training centre, a Hanel representative said on Jan. 26.

A residential area for experts, a green park, a five-star hotel, and a high-class trade centre will be also built to add more convenience for the park’s customers.

Hanel expects to put the park into operation in the first quarter of 2014./.
