The Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade) is partnering with the Vietnam Ministry of Information and Communications to deliver Vietnam-Australia ICT Education Showcase 2018 which will promote Australia’s expertise and capabilities in information communications technology.

The showcase will be held in Hanoi on May 16 and in Ho Chi Minh City on May 18. At the event seven leading Australian institutions will be showcasing their expertise in ICT education and training and their international projects.

The showcase will be highlighted by a panel discussion on “Innovative solutions to quality human resources in the digital age in Vietnam” followed by networking and one-on-one meetings between Vietnamese and Australian trainers to discuss potential institutional links and commercial partnerships.

Australia is known for its high-quality education, research capabilities, advanced digital economy, and strong commitment to innovation and science through the National Innovation and Science Agenda. Those are backed by world-class academic institutions that are internationally recognized for providing quality ICT education, training and research.

With the fast digital adoption across all sectors in Vietnam, the IT sector is growing rapidly focusing on hardware, software, e-commerce and IT services. Vietnam will most likely require 400,000 IT workers from 2016-2020. As part of its Strategy for Science and Technology Development from 2011-2020, the Vietnamese Government is seeking to increase the number of skilled engineers, research organizations, hi-tech incubators and hi-tech enterprises to support this expanding sector.
