Tech Industry Vietnam
Startups, software outsourcing companies, e-commerce websites, and mobile app and video game developers are all part of the budding technology industry in Vietnam that is setting its sights on the international market. But do they have what it takes to compete on a global scale?
Cong Hoa street is a perfect metaphor for Vietnam’s developing technology industry — old mixing with new, innovation with tradition. The dusty thoroughfare just south of Tan Son Nhat airport runs from a dirt road intersection to a pothole-ridden busy highway. On one corner sits a shiny Burger King, and just a few doors down, old shops and restaurants that could have been in the same location for decades flank a new shopping mall.
