The plan was unveiled by Senior Vice President of Google Ken Walker at the meeting with Vietnam’s Deputy Prime Minister Vuong Dinh Hue yesterday.
At the meeting at the the government’s headquarter, Mr. Hue highly appreciated Google’s goodwill in supporting Vietnam’s digital economic development by training many Vietnamese students. This is one of vital measures contributing to Vietnam’s efforts to develop one million successful enterprises by 2020.
Stressing that Vietnam considers information technology as a foundation for future growth, Mr. Hue expected Google to give more assistance to the Southeast Asian country’s long-term development and innovation ecosystem.
He added that Vietnam’s marketing advantages and young employees are attractive enough for Google’s to establish the representative office.
For his part, Walker expressed his agreement with Vietnam’s cybersecurity for a stable society affirming that his firm will join hands with relevant agencies towards this goal.
