The Naver Group has teamed with Hanoi University of Science and Technology to launch the first AI research center in Vietnam. The facility will play a major role in nurturing Hanoi’s high-tech sector and making Vietnam an AI research and development leader by 2030.

Naver’s partnership with Vietnam is part of an international network for AI R&D. Naver launched its Global AI R&D Belt initiative in 2019 to connect software engineers and facilities in South Korea, Japan, the European Union and Vietnam. In August, Naver signed a cooperation agreement with Vietnam's Post and Telecommunications Institute of Technology on AI investment, development and training. Vietnam's AI strategy is a major part of the economic goals for 2030. The government wants Vietnam to establish recognized AI services by 2030.
