Vietnam wants to boost long-term cooperation with Microsoft and will create favourable conditions for the group to implement its programmes in the country, said President Nguyen Minh Triet
At a reception for Craig Mundie, Chief Research and Strategy Officer for Microsoft, in Ha Noi on Nov. 18, President Triet also affirmed that Vietnam would intensify management to ensure strict legislation on Intellectual Property rights.
The State leader proposed that Microsoft provide Vietnam with the necessary assistance to carry out cooperation programmes as it is still a developing country dealing with many challenges.
Mundie, who is in Hanoi to attend the APEC CEO Summit, expressed his belief in Vietnam’s strong and dynamic development, pledging close cooperation with the Vietnamese Government and businesses for mutual development.
The Microsoft officer acknowledged Vietnam’s progress in implementing Intellectual Property rights and hoped that the work would be further improved in the future.
He added that Microsoft has paid particular attention to creating opportunities for the young generation – an important assest for the development of all nations – as well as the transfer of new technology to rural areas, particularly products for health care services and educational development.
