Opportunities and challenges in the local technology scene
As one of the earliest foreign tech investors in Vietnam, NashTech’s beginning was faced with great challenges ranging from adapting to a new working culture thousands of miles from our base in the UK to setting out clear orientation for the company. Nonetheless, with the right vision, NashTech has been able to tackle these initial challenges to become one of the leading technology companies in Vietnam.
Speaking from the view of a pioneer in the field, NashTech is optimistic about the contemporary tech scene in Vietnam since we have acknowledged the emergence of new opportunities for tech application in every facets of life, for instance:
- The rapid economic growth which facilitates the demand for tech services and maintenance from businesses and enterprises irrespective of their scale
- With over 50 million people using smart phones, Vietnam ranks 7th in terms of worldwide apps downloads
- The proliferation of non-cash transaction
On the other hand, in tandem with the aforementioned opportunities, there is still a high degree of challenge that should be addressed to assist the growth of tech industry, particularly:
- Overflowing demand which puts great pressure on supply
- Policies and regulations sometimes do not keep pace with technological advancements, economic growth or business diversity
- Foreign investors’ lack insights into the Vietnamese market and tech scene
Our engaging and valuable meeting with the Consul General and Deputy Consul General has worked as a gateway to future collaboration between the British Consulate General and NashTech, since it gave us a chance to sit down and discuss partnership possibilities as well as determine how we can mutually develop from this association:
- Promoting British’s experiences in digital transformation / digital government
- Bridging British businesses and NashTech
- Mobilising British business community in Vietnam to solve market access challenges
Lastly, this event gives us great hope and vision on partnership opportunities between the two entities. With the British Consulate General’s support, we are beyond grateful about the prospect of collaboration in the near future. We look forward to joining hands with the British Consulate General in fostering UK-Vietnam tech partnership.
