Most of the work in a pilot project to raise computer skills and broadband Internet access in public sites in the country has finished, said the project manager, Phan Huu Phong, at a meeting held in Hanoi on July 21 to evaluate the project implementation.

Under the project, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, more than 300 local staff and 4,000 ordinary people have been trained how to use computers.

In addition, 235 computers and 33 printers have been installed at post offices and libraries in each pilot province, helping local people access to the broadband Internet, said the manager.

The project, launched in last February in the northern province of Thai Nguyen, central province of Nghe An and southern province of Tra Vinh, has received large contributions from the Vietnam Post and Telecommunications Group (VNPT) and the Military Telecoms Corporation (Viettel).

The project is said to be expanded between now and 2015, bringing Internet to remote and isolated areas in the country.
