February 2017 witnesses a big achievement of FPT Corporation in the Southeast Asia nation with the project of Public Finance Management (PFM) for the Ministry of Planning and Finance of Myanmar in Nay Pyi Taw and Yangon. This 11.3-million-USD project is opening up the opportunities for the long-term development of FPT in the ‘land of golden pagodas’.
After 5 years of operation, FPT Myanmar has successfully implemented several information system integration projects such as Myanmar’s National Financial Switching System, National Electronic Information Portal, ERP system for UPG – Myanmar’s largest paint company. The Modernization of Public Finance Management (PFM) project marked an important move of FPT in this nation and demonstrated the company’s development capacity in this market.
Although Myanmar is known as a severe competitive area for both local and international IT vendors and suppliers. Mr. Duong Dung Trieu – Chairman of FPT Myanmar expressed his expectation in the long-term development strategy in this nation:
“By winning the project of public finance modernization, FPT has been confirming the appropriateness of the globalization direction in Myanmar. We are on the roadmap to have all FPT member companies presented in Myanmar by 2020 and all made-by-FPT solutions can be used by our Myanmar customers.“ said Mr. Duong Dung Trieu
Myanmar is the second key market of FPT corporation in the developing countries after Bangladesh. The corporation has been presenting in 21 countries with over 28,000 employees in different business sectors such as telecommunication, information system, technological product distribution, etc. Its expansion in Myanmar also requires a large amount of high-qualified human resources, especially, IT staff in this country.
Since 2017, FPT University’s representative office was placed in Yangon, Myanmar to help Burmese students easily access to quality international higher education programs as a new step forward of FPT Corporation. Those training programs are not only ensuring the development of potential personnel for FPT in Myanmar, but also contributing to the advancement of IT in this country in approaching to the 4th Industrial Revolution.
The adequate preparation of human resources and facilities is actively promoting the development of FPT in Myanmar towards a great prospect. It seems that the goal set for 2020 is entirely feasible. At that time, Myanmar human resources trained by FPT Education will be the pioneers contributing to the development of FPT Myanmar and the national information technology industry.
As a leading IT company in Vietnam, FPT desires to harness the practical experience accumulated from its 20 years of engagement in the development of the Myanmar IT industry, and anticipates it can build up a strong and long-lasting business future in this country.
