HCMC – FPT Group on December 6 commenced construction on a FPT University campus and a software park inside a complex in the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho with a total investment of VND1.4 trillion (US$61.64 million).

Covering 5.2 hectares in Ninh Kieu and Binh Thuy districts, the FPT University and FPT Can Tho Software Park complex will include an office building and a lecture hall in the first phase. They are designed based on international standards to save energy and protect the environment.

The complex, when in place, will have 3,000 staff and 5,000 students. FPT plans to develop the FPT University campus in Can Tho into a leading institution in the delta with 10,000 students by 2025.

FPT general director Bui Quang Ngoc said the complex demonstrates FPT’s commitment to develop the information technology sector in Can Tho and the Mekong Delta as a whole. FPT expects to help the city restructure its economy and build the city into a smart one with advanced technology and a high-skilled labor force.

The project will also help create thousands of software, telecommunications and information technology jobs. FPT Software plans to recruit an additional 500 employees in Can Tho by 2020.

The complex is the 10th project of FPT in the nation. FPT currently owns nine buildings, namely FPT Cau Giay, a FPT University campus in Hoa Lac and F-Ville software villages 1 and 2 in Hanoi City, FPT Massda and FPT Complex in Danang City, and F-Town 1 and 2 and FPT Tan Thuan in HCMC.
