HÀ NỘI — FPT will cooperate with French businesses to promote the fourth industrial revolution, FPT chairman Trương Gia Bình said at a workshop held in Paris on Wednesday.
The workshop drew some 130 representatives from France’s corporations, businesses and startups.
Việt Nam Ambassador to France Nguyễn Ngọc Sơn appreciated the setting up of FPT’s representative office in France in 2008, which significantly helped in boosting the relationship between the two countries.
The ambassador also hoped FPT and the French firms could reach new agreements of cooperation, especially in the fields of providing information technology (IT) services and specialised solutions.
"On the demand for human resources in information technology, Việt Nam’s government would like to train one million programmers each year to catch up with the fourth industrial revolution. Moreover, technology is considered one of the six leading points on the basis of which Việt Nam wishes to strengthen ties with France," Sơn emphasised.
At the conference, La Poste chairman Philippe Wahl said cooperation with Việt Nam was one of the key steps in the development orientation of the company in Asia. With regard to technology, Việt Nam was taking strong steps in terms of development and FPT was one of the pioneers.
At present, FPT has many projects with major technology partners, such as IBM, Microsoft, GE Digital, Siemen and AWS, to train human resources and to meet the needs of this revolution.
FPT has also introduced three models of cooperation with its clients and partners in France, the model of software services, factory model applied for digital conversion service and product development model for the Vietnamese market. These models have been successfully deployed by FPT at a number of major French clients, such as Neopost, Airbus and Telespazio.
The event was organised by FPT in collaboration with France’s IE Club and La Poste Company to seek opportunities between FPT and French enterprises as part of the fourth industrial revolution.— VNS
