Deputy Chairman of the Hanoi People's Committee Ha Minh Hai made this statement today (June 5)  during a meeting with Igarashi Shinji, Senior Executive Director for Asia-Pacific and Vice President of Accenture Japan, to discuss mutual cooperation.

During the meeting, Shinji shared information about Accenture Japan, highlighting that it is a leading global strategy consulting firm focused on supporting governments and organizations in implementing digital platforms and optimizing public services through AI and cloud computing technologies.

Today, Accenture Japan operates in over 200 cities across 49 countries and territories, with approximately 760,000 employees globally and an average annual revenue of $64.1 billion.

In congratulating Accenture Japan on its achievements, Vice Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Ha Minh Hai acknowledged that these areas align with the city's interests.

He noted that Hanoi is Vietnam's administrative, cultural, educational, economic, and international integration center, with significant potential for economic and tourism development, especially cultural-historical tourism, attracting both domestic and foreign investors.

“Hanoi's advantages include a high-quality workforce and well-connected transportation infrastructure,” said Hai.

The city official stated that Hanoi is currently working on three key initiatives, including developing the Hanoi Capital Planning for the period 2021-2030 with a vision to  2050; adjusting the General Capital Plan to 2045 with a vision for 2065; and drafting an amended Capital Law.

“Hanoi aims to build a globally connected, civilized, modern, green, and smart capital while simultaneously promoting twin transformation, boosting the digital economy, and the circular economy,” Hai continued.

In response, the Accenture Japan executives said they would soon review the proposals and invited Hanoi leaders to visit Japan or Singapore, where Accenture Jpan has successfully implemented public service and digital transformation projects.
