Vietnam strives to have one million of IT officers with int’l qualifications


QĐND – Thursday, December 23, 2010, 20:33 (GMT+7)

Vietnam strives to be one of the world’s top 40 nations whose Information Technology (IT) students meet international qualifications by 2015.


This is one of the focal issues debated by delegates at a seminar on training IT human resources in Hanoi on December 23.


Nguyen Nhu Thang, secretary general of the Vietnam Electronic Industries Association said that to fulfill the project’s objectives, Vietnam needs to pay special attention to developing high quality IT staff, who would meet the requirements for international integration. Vietnam now ranks among top five nations in the Asia-Pacific region which have good sources of IT officers.


However, universities and colleges in Vietnam have not achieved good results in training IT human resources. Only one-third of schools meet the requirements in terms of the teaching staff and facilities, said secretary general of the Vietnam Informatics Association, Nguyen Long.


He added that the education sector should call on social organisations to invest in students and help them compete in informatics contests and become international computer programmers.


The Prime Minister has approved a project to promptly turn Vietnam into a power nation in information technology and communications by 2020.

QĐND – Friday, October 22, 2010, 22:35 (GMT+7)

Intel will help Vietnam to develop its information technology industry and train up the country’s human resources to increase internet use and people’s computer literacy.


A memorandum of understanding on the “Computers for Life” programme was signed by Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Minh Hong and Intel Vietnam’s Director of Enterprise Solutions and the World Ahead Programme Chak Wong, in Hanoi on October 21.   


Under the deal, both will jointly implement programmes on policy consultation, strategies, assist development in the IT sector and domestic businesses manufacturing high-quality low-priced computers and providing useful digital services to people in Vietnam’s remote and mountainous areas.    


On addressing the signing ceremony, Chak Wong highlighted the Vietnamese Government’s attention to developing the IT sector to make Vietnam strong in IT and communications.


Promoting   Vietnam’s IT sector is of particular interest to Intel, said Chak Wong, noting that the MoU confirmed Intel’s pledge to expand its assistance to the Vietnamese market.


Deputy Minister Hong emphasised the significance of the MoU in promoting the nation’s IT industry. He said that he hoped Intel will actively help   Vietnam   in training hi-tech human resources in the future.    


Within the framework of the World IT Forum in   Vietnam   in 2009, the Ministry of Information and Communications launched the “Computers for Life” programme to donate computers to rural, remote and mountainous areas. Over the past year, more than 2,000 computers with Internet access and 300 printers, together with other equipment were presented to schools, disabled peoples centres and local people. 


The Ministry, along with Intel, will expand the programme to raise people’s knowledge through training activities to gradually bridge the digital gap.
