Hanoi wants Microsoft’s help to become technology incubator

Hanoi, April 7 (VNA) – Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Nguyen Duc Chung has expressed his hope for cooperation with Microsoft to turn the city into a technology incubator.

He made the remark while receiving Vice President for Asia Public Sector at Microsoft Stefan Sjöström in Hanoi on April 5, according to Ha Noi Moi daily.

He said the Vietnamese capital city’s plan to build an e-government is being carried out on schedule and at the fastest pace nationwide.

Hanoi attaches importance to building a startup ecosystem, especially in information technology, and wants Microsoft’s cooperation in this field, he said.

A software industrial park invested by Vietnam’s Vingroup will be built in Hanoi soon, Chung noted, asking Microsoft to cooperate in making the park an innovation technology zone.

He pledged that the local administration will provide the best possible conditions for the development of information technology.
