Vietnam targets to maintain its ranking among the world’s top ten preferred destinations for software outsourcing, according to the national agenda for IT sector development through 2020.

The programme requires the sector to achieve an annual growth of at least 15 percent in software, digital content and IT services and attract around 5 billion USD in foreign investment into the electronic hardware industry.

The industry is also tasked with developing its core products, focusing on software used in State agencies and enterprises as well as those in great demands in society such as mobile phone and web applications.

Building capacity and improving the competitiveness of IT organisations and enterprises are also top priorities.-VNA
