During his four-day visit to Vietnam (May 19-23), Murthy shared practical experiences and inspirational stories with managers, experts and leaders in the Vietnamese IT industry. He discussed topics, including promoting innovation in businesses, the development of new technology trends and the opportunities available for the Vietnamese IT industry.

Murthy also recognized Vietnam's emergence as a global technology destination, attributing it to the country's commitment and investment in the IT sector.

He praised the qualities of the Vietnamese people, including their courage, hard work, discipline, creativity and ambition. He expressed his belief that Vietnam has the potential to become one of Asia's leading developed countries and one of the fastest-growing nations in the world. With a rising GDP and the determination of its people, Vietnam is expected to bring prosperity to its citizens faster than many other countries.

Murthy highlighted the role of companies like FPT in realizing Vietnam's national potential. FPT, under the leadership of Truong Gia Binh, aims to achieve significant milestones in IT service revenue from foreign markets. He expressed confidence in FPT's ability to contribute significantly to Vietnam's future growth and emphasized the company's importance in Vietnam's development.

Binh, Chairman of the Board of Directors of FPT, acknowledged the inspiration and influence of India and Infosys on FPT and Vietnam. He explained that 24 years ago, FPT looked to India and Murthy for inspiration on how to transform Vietnam into a software super power. FPT's decision to venture into the global market for software exports was influenced by the belief that Vietnam that it could develop and export software to the world. Over the years, FPT has played a pivotal role in rallying domestic software companies and promoting Vietnamese intelligence abroad, contributing to national prosperity.

The Software and IT Services Association (VINASA), formerly the Vietnam Software Business Association, was established in 2002 with the aim of promoting the global presence of the Vietnamese software and IT services industry.

Vietnam has made significant progress in narrowing the gap with India's software industry powerhouse, achieving more than ten times the revenue in the span of 20 years. VINASA's ambitious goals include reaching 50 billion USD in revenue by 2030 and 150 billion USD by 2045, further establishing Vietnam as a prominent player in the global IT industry.

Murthy's visit to Vietnam, along with his engagement with the Vietnamese IT community and government leaders, serves to strengthen the cooperative relationship between Indian and Vietnamese IT businesses.

His insights and experiences contribute to the growth and development of the Vietnamese IT industry, while also highlighting Vietnam's potential as a technology destination and a rapidly emerging economy.
