HA NOI (Biz Hub) — Fifty-six information and technology (IT) products and 17 IT services, will receive the 2016 Sao Khue Award, according to the Viet Nam Software and IT Services Association (VINASA).

This is the first year the top 10 best IT products and services have been selected for the award based on their revenues, trade names, market shares, and customers, apart from their high socio-economic effects.

The six best IT products and four services will be selected from 17 nominations.

"The total revenue of the 10 products and services reached more than US$240 million, accounting for 17 per cent of the sector's revenue," Mai Liem Truc, chairman of the award's jury board, said.

"The top 10 this year are mostly large and well-known enterprises, which not only serve the domestic market but also the foreign market," Truc said.

Changes in voting this year would help affirm brand names and the prestige of Vietnamese IT software products and services in the domestic market and set the standards for international integration when the country joins the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

The awards ceremony will be held on April 23 in Ha Noi and be broadcast live on VTC1 channel. — VNS
