Vietnam is trying to promote the development of high-tech industry and attract global outsourcing service companies.
Since the open-door policy was introduced in the 1980s, Vietnam's economic growth has been mainly based on the export of agricultural products and low-wage manufacturing industries. However, many visionary investors believe that Vietnam can do more than that.
Land for industrial production in Vietnam is cheaper than in China, and the average wage here is less than a third of that in China's coastal industrial zones. Nearly half of Vietnam's population are under the age of 30, and Vietnam's well-trained human resources are plentiful. Vietnam is also stepping up administrative reform in an effort to combat corruption. In addition, Vietnam also offers many incentives for foreign investors
While foreign investors increasingly appreciate Vietnam, many domestic high-tech companies are also developing strongly to provide outsourcing services to large corporations in the world such as Microsoft, Sony and Electronic Arts.
The global outsourcing service industry depends not only on human resources but also on the quality of telecommunications infrastructure, which is still a drawback of Vietnam. On the other hand, Vietnamese employees cannot speak English fluently like Indian or Filipino ones. However, improving telecommunications infrastructure can be done much more quickly than improving human resources.
