In 2018, the Vietnamese economy grew well, recording GDP growth of 7.08%. Foreign direct investment (FDI) in Vietnam continues to be a driver of Vietnam’s economy, achieving 9.1% growth to reach US$19.1 billion in 2018. The trade war between the United States and China is an opportunity for Vietnam to attract higher foreign investment into its manufacturing sector, which contributes one of the largest shares to Vietnam’s FDI inflow.
Supported by a healthy economy, a good level of investment was poured into the development of 4G technology and the formulation of a digital strategy. In addition, IT services spending was driven by the deployment of new core networks, core banking, ERP, and security systems. In 2H18, spending on private cloud was driven by the government, banking, and telecommunications sectors.
The telecommunications sector continues to be the bright spot for IT services spending, driven by large-scale projects such as the Metro Area Network (MAN-E), internet infrastructure development, and enhanced security protection. In addition, IT services spending of the government sector in 2H18 grew significantly due to investment in upgrades of the IT infrastructure of national systems such as taxation, finance, custom, and egovernment.
FPT performed strongly with large-scale ERP system and hardware deployment deals from the banking and government sectors. CT-IN and DTS also performed well this cycle, driven by large-scale deals in markets such as network consulting & integration, systems integration, and hardware deployment from clients in the telecommunications and government sectors. In addition, Infosys and Deloitte are also thriving in Vietnam due to large contract wins from the banking and manufacturing sectors for core banking and ERP system deployment.
