Vietnam has been represented by senior officials from the Information and Communications Ministry and over 10 companies at the CommunicAsia2014, EnterpriseIT2014 and BroadcastAsia2014 being held in Singapore from June 17-20.

In the framework of Asia’s largest exhibitions, Nguyen Thanh Phuc, Director General of the ministry’s Information Technology Department, attended the 10th Ministerial Forum, a closed-door platform for government senior officials to discuss key policies and developments in the field.

At the conference on broadband, Nguyen Phong Nha, Deputy Director General of the ministry’s Telecommunications Authority, spoke on broadband market and forecast in Vietnam.

Nha said that all initiatives and ICT programmes in Vietnam aimed to provide everyone everywhere with access to high speed broadband, adding that Vietnam’s policy and regulations support creation of competitive environment, investment in ICT including application of new advanced technologies and development of new applications.

Among the dozen Vietnamese companies attending this year’s exhibitions is Wise-Concetti Communication Technology Co. Ltd., which provides all kinds of service in localization, including website and software localisation. The company joins the region’s largest event for the first time to seek for more customers, besides Apple and Samsung.

Anewtech Systems Pte Ltd, a Singapore company, and its Vietnam subsidiary also join the Vietnamese team at the regional event. The company’s Managing Director, Terence Teo, told Vietnam News Agency’s Singapore-based reporter that after nearly six years’ operation in Vietnam, the company has seen returns on investment in Vietnam.

“We really feel that we can do more in infrastructure projects (in Vietnam) to help Vietnam grow in terms of telecommunication. We definitely invested and may in the near future invest more in manufacturing facilities (in Vietnam).”
