A majority of 97.3% of Vietnamese companies are outside electronic trading, reported the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) at the conference “supporting companies with information technology to serve the global integration and development” on March 23 in Hanoi.
The VCCI said many companies had not taken advantage of the strength of IT. Investment sources for IT was seriously imbalanced: 60% of the total investment for hardware, 11.7% for software and only 4.8% for human training. A significant number of 96.4% of businesses don’t use IT consultative services, 40% don’t have professional IT technicians and over 70% do not have their own websites.
The conference also discussed basic issues to develop IT such as human resources, infra-structure and legal environment.
At the conference, Than Trong Phuc, general director Intel Vietnam, the world’s largest chip maker said they would hold the contest “Model business for IT application” this April in order to select companies to support the IT development.
