FPT Software, Vietnam's leading IT service provider, on March 22 announced the inauguration of a new office in Seoul, marking it the second in South Korea, and 64th globally.
With the new facility, FPT Software is the first Vietnamese IT company to open an office in the Korean market, pinning high hopes on strengthening the company’s presence there and becoming a world-class, billion-dollar company.

Addressing the opening ceremony, FPT Corporation chairman Truong Gia Binh said, "Our business philosophy is to stay closer to our customers, which could let us reach and serve our customers better. FPT will continuously open new offices around the world. FPT Software's second office in Korea helps us expand our global network further and strengthens our ability to connect and accompany customers despite time and geography."
According to FPT Software Korea CEO Ha Minh Tuan, the new office is expected to address the shortage of IT talent in the country.
“We also see strong demand for technology solutions such as AUTOSAR, IVI, SAP, low-code, managed services, and digital transformation. With this new office, FPT Software Korea is committed to helping local clients address their demands for both digital talent and emerging technologies,” Tuan said.
"By 2025, FPT Software Korea set its sights on increasing revenue approximately sixfold, growing our workforce, and soon scaling up to be a Global Delivery Centre, assisting customers in the region."
Setting its first footprint in Korea in 2016, FPT Software has provided IT solutions and services to more than 20 customers; some notable partners include LG Electronics, LG CNS, Shinhan Bank, and Shinsegae I&C.
Its clientele includes companies from various industries, such as cars, finance, and healthcare. In the near future, the company expects to develop and set up more offices in Korea’s key IT areas, such as Gangnam and Pangyo.
