At the investment promotion conference within the scope of Vietnam President Tran Dai Quang’s state-level visit to Japan, FPT and two major Japanese companies signed 30-million-USD MoUs for cooperation, laying the groundwork for their business transformation in the new digital era.
According to the MoU with ISE Foods – Japanese food processing major, FPT will apply advanced technologies on the manufacturing process of egg factories in Japan and Vietnam. ISE Foods is now operating a farming system raising more than 130 million chickens in Japan and the United States. In order to increase their efficiency and productivity, FPT, as a pioneer in Digital Transformation, aims at helping ISE Foods get more involved with Smart Factory, contributing to revolutionizing the poultry sector.
The MoU signed with Toppan Printing – Japanese global printing company – outlines the cooperation in business transformation and IT manpower training. Specifically, FPT will help the global printing company adopt Digital Transformation into their business activities and jointly establish security and BPO (Business Process Outsourcing) centres with the expected workforce of 500 employees operating in Vietnam and Southeast Asia. For several years, Toppan Printing has been FPT’s prominent client in Japan.
“This is a solid step in tightening ties as well as promoting trade and investment between Vietnam and Japan”. FPT Chairman Truong Gia Binh asserted. “Concurrently, FPT’s cooperation with world top partners has been marked a significant development and reform in quality and model. With these newly-signed MoUs, FPT has become a valuable partner providing end-to-end solutions from project consultancy, analysis, deployment, to maintenance, serving as a Systems Integrator”.
