HÀ NỘI — A workshop to promote trade and economic cooperation, especially in information and communications technology (ICT), between Israeli and Vietnamese enterprises was held in Hà Nội on October 11.
The event was organised by the Israeli Embassy in Việt Nam, the Economic and Trade Office under the Ministry of Economy and Industry and the Export and International Cooperation Institute of Israel as part of activities to mark the 25th anniversary of bilateral diplomatic ties.
The Israeli delegation to the workshop included nine leading firms operating in ICT.
In his opening speech, Yaniv Tessel, Commercial Counsellor at the Israeli Embassy, said the workshop aims to share knowledge and experience and introduce Israel’s solutions in telecommunication, IT and communications.
According to Krael Amitai from the Export and International Cooperation Institute of Israel, Israeli companies introduced technologies in telecommunication and communications, including network and infrastructure, value-added services, management of smart cities and buildings, video transmission optimisation, video management and monitoring, big data management, Internet of Things, mobile service and mobile network security.
Vũ Thế Bình, vice chairman of the Vietnam Internet Association, said up to 54.2 per cent of Vietnamese use the internet. This is a solid foundation for enterprises to develop.
Vietnamese firms always want to have co-operation opportunities with foreign peers, including those from Israel, he stated.
Participants were updated on Israeli telecommunication and ICT technologies and optimal solutions in the field. The two countries’ enterprises also discussed potential business tie-ups.
In recent years, Israel’s technology transfer to Việt Nam has been enhanced in high-tech agriculture, IT and telecommunication. Notably, ties between the two sides’ firms in information safety and cyber security have developed well. — VNS
