HA NOI — The Viet Nam Software and IT Service Association (VINASA) and South Korea's Daegu Metropolitan Mobile Technology Convergence Centre signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) last Friday on mutual co-operation for ICT infrastructure services and development.
Under the agreement, the two countries will exchange information to help small-and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to prosper.
They will also exchange and disseminate information relevant to the enhancement of business co-operation between the SME industries from both countries.
In addition, the two sides will co-operate in other areas of the information security field.
Speaking at the signing ceremony, VINASA's vice chairman Nguyen Nhat Quang said Vietnamese and South Korean businesses had co-operated productively in the ICT sector, especially in e-learning and digital content.
"We expect the MoU to facilitate co-operation in the mobile sector, contributing to bringing trade turnover between the two countries to US$20 billion by the end of the year," Quang said.
Lee Jae Hoon, the centre's director, said that co-operation would also increase the competitiveness of businesses in the global market. — VNS
