Vingroup, the largest private conglomerate in Vietnam, and Google Cloud have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to support Vingroup’s ongoing digitisation and innovation strategy.
The MOU agreement was signed in New York City on the sidelines of President Nguyen Xuan Phuc’s diplomatic trip to the United States this week, and sees Vingroup and Google Cloud collaborating closely as strategic partners to drive the group’s comprehensive digital transformation. Specifically, Google Cloud will help Vingroup to advance its public Cloud adoption on Google Cloud Platform, and identify opportunities to apply cloud-based machine learning, artificial intelligence, and smart data analytics technologies across Vingroup’s varied lines of business.
Nguyen Viet Quang, vice chairman and CEO of Vingroup said, “This MOU with Google Cloud builds on our successful on-going relationship with Google. This new step forward in our partnership will see us working closely to explore new opportunities to digitise not only the way we engage our consumers but also how Vingroup enhances its resilience and agility and executes against its global expansion plans.”
“Google Cloud is uniquely positioned to help Vingroup drive its growth strategy with our innovative and trusted industry solutions and vertical expertise. We look forward to our expanded collaboration, and to supporting Vingroup as it continues to play a leading role in the long term success of Vietnam’s digital transformation,” said Thomas Kurian, CEO of Google Cloud.
