FPT Software, Vietnam’s leading IT solutions provider, has recently announced the opening of a new office in Bangkok, Thailand that will target the top 30 IT companies in that country and support FPT Software’s strategic strategy to increase its global presence.
FPT Software has had a significant presence in seven countries in the Asia Pacific region over the past ten years: Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, and China (including Hong Kong). As a result, it is able to offer end-to-end IT services to companies across all industries. By 2030, the company wants to rank among the Top 50 worldwide service providers for digital transformation.
Currently, the FPT Software’s new office in Thailand is located at Thanapoom Tower, 10th Floor, Zone C, New Petchburi Road, Makasan, Ratthewi, Bangkok.
The inauguration was attended by the Ambassador of the S.R. of Vietnam to Thailand, H.E. Phan Chi Thanh, KBTG Chairman Voranuch Dejakaisaya, KBTG Vice Chairman Jarung Kiatsuphapong, Unilever IT SEA Regional Head Piyawan Triyanant, FPT Software’s CHRO Nguyen Tuan Minh, FPT Software’s SVP Nguyen Hoang Trung, FPT Greater Bay Indochina (FPT GBI – a subsidiary of FPT Software) CEO Levi Nguyen, and other distinguished guests.
Speaking at the event, the Ambassador of the S.R. of Vietnam to Thailand, H.E. Phan Chi Thanh, emphasized Thailand and Vietnam’s extensive cooperation, particularly in the digital economy. The Ambassador also thinks that FPT Software can help to fortify this relationship and speed up digital transformation by utilizing its IT capabilities.
According to Levi Nguyen, FPT GBI CEO, the Bangkok branch is anticipated to meet Thailand’s growing demand for digital transformation. In the next three years, they want to expand their local team to 500 top-notch IT engineers and partner with Thai businesses across a range of sectors, including manufacturing, retail, and BFSI.
Moreover, the opening of the new office may make it possible for FPT Software to collaborate more closely on digital transformation initiatives with Thailand’s top businesses. Keeping tabs on the customers is key to their business concept. Thus, new office will enable them to better and more quickly service their clients.
Nguyen continued by saying that it also highlights their company’s strong capabilities and resources in other technologies including cloud, data, artificial intelligence, and cyber security, as well as in digital platforms like KBank’s Make and AIA’s Alive & Vitality.
The digital economy in Thailand is anticipated to contribute 20% to 30% of GDP at the latest by 2030, according to the Minister of Digital Economy and Society. FPT Software, the top IT company in Vietnam, aims to advance long-term digital transformation cooperation between Vietnam and Thailand.
With both governments proposing various frameworks and programs, Vietnam and Thailand are making the transition to a digital economy. This is opening up opportunities for business collaboration between the two countries, particularly in the ICT industry.
