According to the Global Service Media - the Global Outsourcing of IT and BPO services, Ho Chi Minh City ranked 5th in the list of top 50 emerging global outsourcing cities. In that list, Vietnam is also ranked 5th in the top five off shoring nations.
In Vietnam, the software testing industry has become a major IT Services component due to the high caliber of engineering resources through robust government higher education funding. Mr. Nguyen Quoc Hung, CEO of the leading software testing corporation LogiGear Vietnam, said, "...together with our country's competitive advantages in human resources, education, and environmental investments, Vietnam aims to develop 25,000 software testing engineers and quickly become an attractive center for investors in the area's software testing industry. It is the right time for Vietnam to build a long term development strategy for the industry through a community specializing in providing the new generation of software testing human resources."
