Malaysian Prime Minister shares digital transformation experience with FPT

Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad recently held a dialogue with leaders and staff of the FPT Group at Hoa Lac Hi-Tech Park in Hanoi on August 28. 

Sharing Malaysia’s success in digital transformation, Mr. Mahathir said his country has built a comprehensive industry plan to catch up with the fourth industrial revolution, thus improving its global competitiveness and creating high added value. 

FPT Chairman Truong Gia Binh gave Malaysian Prime Minister special gift.

He said Malaysia is accelerating digital transformation with four key pillars of the Industry 4.0, smart tourism, smart education and safe cities development, towards the goal of turning the country into one of the world’s leading 20 economies by 2050. 

Prime Minister (PM) Mahathir also highly appreciated Vietnam’s digital transformation and e-government development goal, partly contributed by information technology groups, including the FPT. 

FPT Chairman Truong Gia Binh shared that as Vietnam is building a national digital transformation project with an aim to be among the top four ASEAN countries in terms of national digitalisation by 2025, Malaysia’s experience will be helpful for Vietnam. 

He said the FPT will learn about Cyberjaya science park set up by Malaysian PM to build an education – artificial intelligence complex in the central province of Binh Dinh. 

The Malaysian PM also took the occasion to answer FPT University students’ questions about Malaysia’s digital transformation experience, career orientation in Industry 4.0 and the importance of artificial intelligence.

Minister of Science and Technology Chu Ngoc Anh suggested Malaysia to offer all possible support to Vietnam’s technological groups to do business in the nation, adding that Vietnam is ready to create favourable conditions for Malaysian firms also.

In the period of 2019 – 2022, FPT plans to transform into a comprehensive digital transformation solution company, aiming to rank among the top 50 global digital transformation companies in the next 10 years. In addition, FPT also aims to participate in training 50,000 human resources for Southeast Asia. 

This is an important milestone marking the bilateral cooperation between Vietnam and Malaysia, and opening up the development cooperation on digital technology for FPT Corporation in the future.

Having been experiencing 13 years of establishment, FPT University is proud to be the leading IT university in Vietnam with its global reputation for excellence in technology and 5-star student services. The university will be the best choice for international students who want to choose high-quality education in one of the most dynamic countries in Asia.
