Vietnamese-delegationSome of the leading telecoms professionals in Vietnam have visited the University of Greenwich.

The university’s Business School hosted Preparing for a Mobile World, an event which saw 15 top executives from Mobifone, the market leading telecoms provider in Vietnam, visit Greenwich for a series of talks.

The Mobifone party met with Greenwich academics to discuss technology, innovation and the changing demands consumers have of their mobile providers. They then toured the Greenwich Campus, the Royal Park and the Digital Enterprise centre on the Greenwich Peninsula.

Professor Chris Birch, Director of Enterprise and Innovation, says: “Our partners from Mobifone enjoyed a programme of speakers and cultural visits as part of our flourishing relationship with the company. Our guests heard from leading UK industry experts in mobile futures, marketing and innovation as part of the trip.”

Mobifone is a partner sponsor of the University of Greenwich in the Vietnamese capital, Hanoi.
