HA NOI (Biz Hub) — The Vietnam Game Developers Federation (VGDF) was recently established by the Vietnam Digital Communication Association and five local game companies.

The local companies are eMobi Game, Digital Fish, DigiWave and GrepGame, besides Tofu.

VGDF's chairman is Nguyen Lam Thanh, who is also vice chairman-cum-general secretary of the association.

VGDF aims to support and boost sustainable and creative development of the Vietnamese game industry, increasing its competitiveness in the world. It will act as a community of Vietnamese game developers to raise game-related issues such as taxes, preferential policies and issuance management.

The federation will represent the Vietnamese game community in organising and participating in national and international game fairs and conferences. It will also act as a bridge between local game studios and international game publishers.

VGDF will share its experience in producing, publishing and developing human resources with start-up game firms. It will also co-operate with state agencies in the management, publication and appraisal of game contents developed by the federation's members.

After it was founded, the federation signed a strategic co-operation agreement with VNPT Technology, a member company of the Vietnam Posts and Telecommunications Group (VNPT). — VNS
