The Vietnamese Government will continue creating all possible conditions for the world’s major IT groups, including Google, to expand operations in the country, Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung promised.
As a developing country Vietnam is applying a lot of science and technology achievements, using Internet for activities on every aspects of life. Foreign investors, especially the big ones, have been coming to Vietnam and consider Vietnam as the “promised land” for their businesses. Vietnam is also considered to be open in allowing Vietnamese people to have best conditions and chances to use the Internet and other social applications. This potentials have made Vietnam as one of the most quickly development country in the world.
On December 12, Sundai Pichai, the CEO of Google, had a conversation with Vietnamese businesses at Ha Noi on the potential of Vietnam companies and the way to help them get the success on the global arena.
The Vietnam visit of Sundai Pichai had inspired a lot of Vietnamese young businesses in their startup dream. Speaking before more than 200 people in a café at the center of Hanoi, Mr. Pichai said that there weren’t any reasons that prevent Vietnam from being successful in the world. And the factors, which Pichai mentioned, were the scale of the domestic market, the big rate of the Internet user and the strong business culture.
“I think this is just matter of time and I believe that many of you have started your dream for a long time” Pichai said.
In Pichai’s opinion, Vietnamese starters can learn experiences from Indian businesses who start their work at India and then reach out to the world when they have enough potentials.
He also said that, Vietnamese starters are now not the international level but they can link to other businesses from countries in the region and “use that power to reach out to the world”.
Pichai said Vietnam is a big and developing market, and the people who join this market shall be confident to think bigger, helping them to be internationally successful.
Mr Pham Huu Ngon, the owner of a local transport company, said that the Pichai’s visist had inspired a lot of people. “The visit of Mr Pichai has given more trust for the startup community and engineers of Vietnam. With thousands of Internet and cell phone users in Vietnam, we can do our job well in the country and expand our business to the regional countries”, Mr Ngon said.
According to Vietnam government statistics, 52% of the 93-million population in Vietnam are using the internet and 128 millions people are cell phone subscribers. Mr Ngon said that the Pichai’s position as the CEO of Google has brought hope for Vietnamese starters that they could become the leader of an international-level company.
Sundar Pichai was speaking at a meeting with Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung during his Vietnam visit. PM Dung highlighted Viet Nam’s market economy, intensive integration, economic, trade and investment ties with almost all economies globally, and the country’s incentives for the information technology (IT) sector. The Vietnamese Government will continue creating all possible conditions for the world’s major IT groups, including Google, to expand operations in the country, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung promised.
The Government leader also called on Google to support and expand its co-operation with Vietnamese partners.
For his part, Sundar Pichai applauded Viet Nam’s development as well as its great potential for IT development. He said the country would soon become one of his company's most important markets. 
He expressed his hope that Google will have more opportunities to expand its operation in the Southeast Asian nation following the signing of the EU-Viet Nam Free Trade Agreement and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement to which Viet Nam is a signatory.
He revealed that his group would implement a number of projects to help Viet Nam train IT engineers and experts, promote the country’s tourism and support small and medium-sized enterprises in entering the world market via e-commerce.
Google expected that Viet Nam would become one of the group’s most important markets, he said, pledging to work harder in the time ahead to further contribute to the country’s socio-economic and IT development.
Google CEO also committed to abide by Vietnamese laws, including those regarding tax and national security of Vietnam./.
