Developing apps for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets has been one of the most dynamic fields in Vietnam, and the mobile sector’s development has been considered the strongest in Southeast Asia.


The remark came from Dr. Michael Mandel, chief economic strategist at the Progressive Policy Institute in Washington, at a forum introducing the draft report on Vietnam’s mobile app development field. 

Vietnam ranks first in mobile app development in the region, still falling behind Japan and China but is very strong in comparison with neighbouring countries, he said. 

The report estimates Vietnam has roughly 29,000 job opportunities relating to software development, such as programmers or developers. 

According to Dr Mandel, Vietnam should continue investing in human resources and talent as the country is only in its first stage of the Internet development cycle. 

Vietnam has the potential to become the centre of the mobile app development sector in the global economy, he added.
