Opening an Office in Nanning, FPT targets the Global and Chinese Automotive Software Industry
FPT has recently opened a Software Strategy Center in Liang Qing, Nanning City, to accelerate the development and provision of high-quality technology solutions for the market size of nearly a billion people, particularly in modern automotive technology.
Consul General Do Nam Trung delivered a speech at the inauguration ceremony of FPT's Software Development Center in Nanning, China.
Nanning is FPT's second office in China. Starting with its first office in Shanghai in 2017, FPT has cooperated with large customers in China's automotive technology and semiconductor manufacturing to carry out key projects.
In the automotive technology sector alone, FPT currently has more than 3,800 engineers and technology experts worldwide implementing projects for various leading global automakers. FPT's automotive technology meets the international AUTOSAR standard and anticipates growing by 40% in 2022, contributing significantly to realizing the one-billion-USD achievement in software export revenue by 2023.
Over the next two years, the software center in Nanning is expected to reach a staff size of 200 and expand its customer base in automotive technology and semiconductor manufacturing in China and globally. At the same time, FPT will develop new customer bases in other sectors, such as finance, banking, and healthcare.
Bordering four provinces of Vietnam and only 380km away from Hanoi, Nanning is a convenient locality for trade, exchange, and training. Dubbed the "Green City," Nanning also gathers large universities with diverse training majors from healthcare, business, and technology to arts and social sciences. Making the most of Nanning's advantages, FPT's new software center also aims to collaborate with universities and educational institutions in Nanning and, widely, Guangxi province to promote potential technology expert training.
There are about 70,000 engineers and over 21,000 technology students in Guangxi, which means a potential workforce for future technology development. Furthermore, with its position and technological capacity as a global company, FPT will provide challenging technology projects for young talents and support the development of high-level professional labor and the technology industry in China and the region.

FPT was represented by Ms. Chu Thi Thanh Ha, Chairperson of FPT Software, and Mr. Nguyen Khai Hoan, Deputy CEO of FPT Software.
At the event, Consul General Do Nam Trung affirmed that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is actively implementing the Government's action program to implement Directive No. 15 of the Politburo on the economic diplomacy situation in 2023. Accordingly, economic diplomacy work is closely following the Government's directives and managing the country's practical needs, timely supporting core economic sectors, and vigorously "putting people, localities, and enterprises at the center of service." Also, the Consul General expressed his support for FPT and Vietnamese enterprises to enhance further cooperation with Guangxi, bringing practical benefits to local enterprises and people.
Speaking at the event in Chinese, FPT Software Chairperson Chu Thi Thanh Ha said: "This is a remarkable milestone in the history of the Corporation as well as FPT Software in China. With global technology experience, FPT Software finds its strength in establishing technology service and research centers, helping corporate customers promote business growth, and providing high-value technology solutions."
The FPT leadership and staff at the Nanning office in China participated in the FPT Happy Run.
On the journey to explore environmentally friendly transportation solutions, smart electric cars get support worldwide. This type of car integrates a comprehensive and high-tech control system which helps personalizes the experience while enhancing users' safety. In electric car production, designing technology systems alongside semiconductor components is the vital point that makes a difference.
China's high-tech electric car market is leading the world in both sales and production volume. According to Canalys, 59% of the world's electric cars sold are in mainland China, equivalent to 5.9 million. With a vast scale and favorable conditions created by the country's leaders, China is an engaging market to attract tech giants' attention in the world's auto industry.
The FPT Happy Run was launched to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the establishment of FPT Corporation.
After the opening ceremony, the FPT Software leadership and employees participated in the FPT Happy Run to raise funds for school infrastructures and facilities in mountainous areas of Vietnam. Starting from the Nanning Bridge and following the picturesque Yong River, FPT Software employees left their "footprints of happiness" to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the establishment of the FPT Corporation.
