The Quang Trung Software City (QTSC) this year will work to complete its technical infrastructure and service system, targeting to attract more investors, delegates told a seminar on March 14 in Ho Chi Minh City.

Chu Tien Dung, chairman of the QTSC Development Company, said: "The park has pledged to improve its management and services quality to make it more professional and transparent."

In addition, it will support IT firms so they can expand their market, including trade promotions in Myanmar and other countries, he added.

The park also plans to work with localities like Lam Dong and Nam Dinh provinces to help them develop the IT industry and establish more software parks in the country, he said.

Speaking at the seminar, Le Manh Ha, deputy chairman of the Ho Chi Minh City People's Committee, said the software park had attracted substantial investments from leading firms in the industry and become a model that could be expanded elsewhere in the country.

Le Quoc Cuong, deputy director of the City Department of Information and Communications, said the park had spurred economic restructuring in the city by promoting the role of the knowledge-based economy with high-quality and added-value products and services.

Cuong said his department would co-operate with the park to hold more dialogues between IT firms and agencies to help businesses solve operating difficulties.-VNA
