The Vietnamese team won third prize after competing with 146 teams from 36 countries at the Huawei ICT Competition 2022-23 Global Final held in Shenzhen, China.

Before the final, the team surpassed more than 120,000 students from more than 2,000 universities in 74 countries and territories around the world to take part in the final.

Huawei ICT Competition 2022-23 was held for the seventh time, recording the most significant organisation scale ever.

The students must go through many national and regional competitions, overcoming many competitors to participate in the Global Final. The Vietnamese team consists of three students, including Nguyen Quoc Hung (Posts and Telecommunications Institute of Technology - PTIT), Tran Duc Lam, and Vu Quang Hai (FPT University); with the guidance of Dr. Tran Tien Cong (Posts and Telecommunications Institute of Technology - PTIT) competed in the global final round. This year, the global final round consists of three parts: Practice, Innovation, and Industry. The practical exam has three tracks: Network, Cloud, and Computing.

Nguyen Minh Hong, Chairman of the Vietnam Digital Communications Association (VDCA), said: “Huawei ICT Competition is a practical and useful playground to find and honour young ICT talents and help them connect with businesses through Huawei's talent bridge programme (ICT Talent Bridge). Many ICT industry officials, educators, and international organisations appreciated the value of the competition. Hopefully, in the coming years, the contest will be strongly organised in Viet Nam, to create opportunities for students to access and improve their knowledge of ICT."

Xiao Haijun, President of Global Partner Development and Sales Dept, Huawei Enterprise Business Group, said: "Digital talent and digital skills will be the foundation for the digital economy development. In the future, Huawei will bring ICT education resources to more schools around the world. We are projected to build 7,000 Huawei ICT Academies in total by 2026, train more than 1 million students every year, greatly improving students' digital literacy and skills for a more dynamic and inclusive digital world."

The annual Huawei ICT Competition was held for the first time in 2015, in order to create a playground for competition and international exchange for university and college students around the world, as well as improve their knowledge and practical ability about ICT for students. Since its initial launch in 2015, more than 580,000 students from 85 countries and regions around the world have participated in the competition. — VNS
