This is the 5th year the competition has been held in Vietnam.

Nguyen Vinh Hien, Deputy Minister of Education and Training, said that the competition provides an intellectual playground for the younger generation in Vietnam, thereby enhancing computer skills and work performance for the future labor force in Vietnam.

The MOSWC helped Vietnam standardise office computer skills for Vietnamese students to meet international standards, he noted, adding it is also an opportunity for schools to modernise their computer training programmes.

At the event, the Ministry of Education and Training, Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper and IIG Vietnam signed an agreement to co-organise the competition over 2015-2019.

Previously, IIG Vietnam organized the event with the support of Viettel Group, VPBank and Microsoft Vietnam.
