The Vietnam Posts and telecommunications Institute of Technology (PTIT) and the Indian Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (CDAC) signed an addendum to the agreement on the establishment of a Centre for Software Development and Training in Vietnam on August 7.


 Ambassador of the Republic of India to Vietnam Pranay Verma and President of PTIT Vu Van San signed the deal in Hanoi yesterday.

Under the agreement, CDAC will provide non-refundable aid of US$1.08 million from the ASEAN-India cooperation fund to set up a modern information and communication technology centre in order to provide advanced IT training, online classes and e-learning at PTIT in Ho Chi Minh City.

The Centre will be recognised as an authorized CDAC training centre for two years. The CDAC will send two experts to the centre in Vietnam to support its operations for six months.
The centre will provide IT training courses according to the framework and standards of the CDAC's advanced informatics training schools to improve capacity for local industries and remove digital gaps.
The CDAC has successfully implemented 40 projects to establish information and communication technology centres in many countries around the world.
The project in Ho Chi Minh City is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
