Indian giant proposes to build IT centre in HCM City


HCM CITY — The Hindustan Computers Limited (HCL) from India plans to establish an information and technology (IT) centre in HCM City, which will provide training for about 10,000 IT engineers over the next five years.

HCL Executive Vice President Sanja Gupta revealed the plan during a meeting with the city’s leaders last week, saying the southern economic hub had favourable conditions to develop his company’s project.

He also spoke highly of the IT labour force in Việt Nam, describing it as an important factor to ensuring the success of IT services in the future.

A full report on the plan to build the centre in HCM City would be submitted to HCL senior leaders for approval this July. Once approved, work on the IT centre would begin in the fourth quarter of this year, he said.

For his part, the municipal People’s Committee vice chairman Trần Vĩnh Tuyến said the corporation’s development strategy was in line with the city’s potential and development roadmap.

The city pledged to fully implement preferential policies for foreign investors, including those operating in the IT sector, he said.

HCL is one of the three leading IT companies in India. With more than 40 years of experience, the enterprise has some 140,000 employees in 44 countries around the world.
