Introduction

Founded on March 16th 2001, Quang Trung Software City (QTSC) is one of key projects of Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC), which is built to promote the development of Vietnam IT industry and transform the economic structure of the city in the integration period.

After 17 years of development, QTSC has attracted 150 ICT companies (49 international companies and 91 domestic ones) and 33 investors (who have been completing infrastructure to serve the local needs) with the total amount of  20,555 people studying and working here. QTSC has become an attractive destination for those who want to seek investment and cooperation opportunities in IT industry. Some of the big names are KDDI, SPS, TMA Solutions, Global CyberSoft, VinaData, MISA, etc. They have provided more than 250 IT products, services and solutions in many different fields which are exported to over 20 countries, mainly focused on the United States, Japan and Europe.

Until now, QTSC has been the first software park in Vietnam that received the Certificate of Concentrated IT Park by the Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC). On March 03rd 2016, it was marked a breakthrough in developing the software industry and start-up community when the Prime Minister signed to pilot the QTSC chain to uplift its successful model with the two existing members: Quang Trung Software City (QTSC) and Information Technology Park – Vietnam National University Ho Chi Minh City (VNU-ITP). Furthemore, on October 17th 2017, MIC issued the Decision 1766/QĐ-BTTTT on QTSC chain’s organizational structure and operation regulation. Accordingly, members of the chain will inherit the strong brand of QTSC which has been built up for more than a decade in order to attract investment, develop domestic and foreign markets. The highest desire is that Vietnam's software industry will become more competitive with other countries in the region and grow to be the most attractive destination for large IT companies and corporations around the world.

Since 2016, QTSC has taken the initiative to apply technologies to be more modern and reach to become the first smart city model in Vietnam by implementing many IoT applications: Geographic Information System (GIS), Smart building, Wastewater monitoring system, Smart parking systems, Smart power grid systems (Smart Grid), etc. All is to improve the quality of administration, increase the local community’s satisfaction and develop the QTSC brand name.

QTSC also collaborated with partners to build the “Agriculture Center of Excellence” in March 2017. This is an area dedicated to research and transfer new IT solutions in agriculture, assist Vietnamese farmers to have the opportunity to access new technologies in the world, so that they can improve the local agricultural production and business.

Recently, according to KPMG Vietnam, the leading advisory company, QTSC has been ranked 3rd out of 8 evaluated parks, based on the assessment of operational performance using indicators such as occupancy rate, quality of supporting services, on-site infrastructure, etc. The analysis has also placed QTSC 4th among its peers in terms of attractiveness of FDI, number of companies located in the park, concentration rate of IT sectors, quality of human resources, etc. Overall, QTSC stood out for its investment incentives, presence of tenants from various industries, and the sustainable growth of companies located in the park.
