Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
The Department of Commerce's International Trade Administration (ITA) is seeking U.S. academic institutions, training centers, and other interested parties who would like to organize joint activities with their counterparts in Vietnam in the field of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). In 2007, the ITA launched the U.S.-Vietnam ICT Commercial Dialogue with the Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) in Vietnam to discuss various ICT issues that have an impact on trade between our two countries. The U.S. and Vietnamese companies that participated in the meeting recommended the establishment of a ``public/private partnership for the development of human resources through technical training programs.'' Therefore MIC has proposed that an Academic Advisory Group be created in addition to a Business Advisory Group under the Dialogue. The objective of the Academic Advisory Group would be to facilitate an exchange of ideas on the best curriculum to meet the needs of ICT growth, and to increase opportunities for Vietnamese citizens to study in the ICT field in Vietnam through distance learning mechanisms, or at United States institutions. The initial meeting of the Academic Advisory Group, to be held via videoconference, is tentatively scheduled for November 12, 2008. A representative of the group would make a brief report at the ICT Dialogue Working Group meeting on November 13 in Washington, DC. A follow-up meeting is anticipated in January 2009 in Hanoi.

In 2007, the ITA launched the U.S.- Vietnam ICT Commercial Dialogue with the Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) in Vietnam to discuss various ICT issues that have an impact on trade between our two countries. The U.S. and Vietnamese companies that participated in the meeting made several recommendations for future areas of cooperation. To continue facilitating input from the private sector, ITA and MIC agreed to create a Business Advisory Group under the Dialogue and encourage wide participation from both countries. The main objectives of the Business Advisory Group are to identify areas of mutual concern to be potentially addressed by the Working Group of the U.S.-Vietnam ICT Commercial Dialogue, and to coordinate activities that could be considered deliverables for the Dialogue. Examples of issues that have been covered so far include advancement of telecom infrastructure, protection of intellectual property rights for software, and supporting electronic commerce by developing legal frameworks for data privacy.
