Vietnam's FPT looks to lead tech rebound from coronavirus hit

Chairman says businesses must adapt to the 'new normal' as regards data centers

FPT held a groundnreaking ceremony for a new data center in Ho Chi Minh City on May 4.

HANOI -- FPT, a leading Vietnamese information technology company, began construction on the country's largest data center in Ho Chi Minh City earlier this month, two weeks after the government lifted social distancing measures aimed at halting the new coronavirus.

FPT was established in 1988 by Vietnam's National Institute of Technology Research to develop food processing technology. The company has since expanded into information technology and telecommunications, becoming a provider of internet and TV services as well as tech-based corporate solutions. It was listed in 2006 and now has 46 offices overseas, including Japan, Europe and the U.S.
