Newwave Solutions at Japan ICT Week 2013
The Japan Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Week is an annual event held by the Vietnam Software and IT Services Association (VINASA) in partnership with the Vietnam – Japan IT Cooperation Club since 2007. The Japan ICT Week 2013 marked the 40th anniversary of Japan and Vietnam’s cooperation. The event is a golden opportunity for local IT companies to get updated with the latest digital trends and to explore new business opportunities with Japan – the world’s fourth biggest IT market. This year, there were 60 Japanese IT companies and 200 Vietnamese IT companies presented during the four-day events in Hanoi. There was a wide range of activities, including workshops, contests, job fairs, cultural exchanges, networking, etc.
The cooperation between Vietnam and Japan’s businesses in the IT field has accelerated in recent years. Japan IT companies have considered Vietnam as a trusted outsourcing destination in the Asia-Pacific region. Thanks to competitive pricing, skillful workforce, stable political status and tax incentives, Vietnam has become Japan’s second outsourcing partner with an average annual growth of 30%. As the demand is still growing, the Japan ICT Week is a platform for Vietnamese and Japanese companies to connect and cooperate.
The event also hosted an array of workshops to help Vietnamese IT companies improve their capabilities to penetrate the Japanese market. Newwave Solutions has the honor to present at the workshop “Partnership with Japanese companies” as a key speaker. CEO To Quang Duy has shared some of our challenges when working with Japanese clients and provided recommendations for Vietnamese IT companies.
He shared: “To satisfy Japanese clients, Vietnam IT brands need to improve project management, technical skills and quality assurance capacity. Vietnamese engineers, programmers, developers, and coders need to improve their technical skills, stay updated with the latest trends, enhance their Japanese and English communication skills, and enhance their understanding of Japanese culture to deliver a suitable IT solution.”
“Working in the IT field for the last 10 years, I was glad to witness an increasing number of Vietnamese engineers leading the Vietnam IT industry to new heights. At Newwave Solutions, we have a dedicated program that supports our staff to improve both soft skills and hard skills so that our company can stay at the frontline of the innovation battle. I believe that every IT company should have an action plan for the next few years to improve the quality of their workforce.”
