India’s HCL Technologies has announced its entry into Vietnam with its first delivery center in Hanoi.
With their local entity HCL Vietnam, the company will deliver advanced technology solutions to clients across different industries all around the world, including financial services, healthcare, infrastructure, engineering, and cybersecurity.
“We are fully prepared and committed in bringing new opportunities for both young and experienced talent, to work for a leading global technology company without having to move out of their home country,” said Sanjay Gupta, the Corporate Vice President of HCL Technologies.
HCL hopes to collaborate with local ICT and engineering institutions to foster and train local tech talent. HCL aims to hire 3,000 local university graduates and professionals over the next three years to empower the country’s tech talent pool.
“Vietnam and its skilled youth have the true potential to develop a robust IT industry, which is spearheading economic growth in the country,” added Mr. Gupta.
Vice Minister Phan Tam of Vietnam’s Ministry of Information and Communications expressed delight at HCL’s decision to build and grow its business in the country.
“I am very confident that the kind of world-class platform and exposure this company will be providing to our talented resources through its global delivery center will help in nurturing and building skills that are very much needed in today’s digital age,” said Vice Minister Phan.
As part of kickstarting its operations in Vietnam, HCL will organise a Virtual Job Fair for fresh graduates on December 19, 2020.
“Vietnam offers a friendly business environment and its rapidly growing IT and physical infrastructure is making it a favorable destination for global multinational companies to set up their global delivery centers here,” commented Sanh Chau Pham, Ambassador of Vietnam to India.
HCL began its business operations in Vietnam in July 2020, and there is hope that more companies will be welcomed to help Vietnam emerge as an IT destination.
