Aiming to strengthen the Vietnamese businesses’ competition by use of IT, an IT Consultancy Center managed by the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) was officially opened at the end of September.
In the first two years, the center is expected to act as an IT training center at which VCCI, Intel, Microsoft, Khai Tri, Nguyen Hoang and other IT firms will cooperate in establishing the curriculum.
Initially, in October and November, the center will offer local enterprises basic IT training courses in digital device controlling (laptop and PDA), office computer set-up, email server management, and using business software to find solutions for the textiles, food, tobacco and fishery processing industries.
Formerly, VCCI held about 200 basic IT training courses for local businesses, half of which were free.
Local companies enrolling in the courses will be financially aided by organizations and government for 30 to 50 percent of tuition.
“There will be more IT consultancy centers established across the country,” said Nguyen Van Thao, deputy secretary general of VCCI.
The IT Consultancy Center is located in the Netsoft Building at 83 Nguyen Dinh Chieu Street, District 3, Ho Chi Minh City.
