Dr. Nguyen Anh Thi and Mr Suresh Harsh Bharwani exchanged the conclusion.

Speaking at the ceremony, Dr. Nguyen Anh Thi said: "Lack of high quality human resources in the field of information technology and communication is one of the major obstacle to the country's development. Therefore, we need to seek new models of cooperation with developed countries in the world to solve this problem. India is an experienced partner and also a brand in the field of science - technology. We believe that with the signing today, although it’s only a short-term solution for human resource training, it will contribute somehow to solving the shortage of the current labor market ".

According to Dr. Le Thai Hy, the conclusions of the training program of ITP in recent years were efforts in line with the policy of the city and government in training high quality human resources and create a start-up environment for the young.

The program will provide knowledge and skills to students in the fields of information technology, multimedia art and finance with 6-month training period.
