On the occasion of the 35th anniversary of FPT Corporation, the founders of FPT decided to visit several foreign subsidiaries, in order to meet people who are involved in the successful progress of one of the strongest players in the IT market. The grand finale of the so-called Happy Tour, a 2-week trip, during which they visited subsidiaries in Asia and Europe, was undoubtedly a visit to Fpt Slovakia.
The initial impetus to undertake such an exceptional trip was the unique opportunity to meet and talk to employees in other countries who are trying to strengthen FPT's position in the global market through projects for strategic customers. An equally important aspect of this visit was to learn more about the key projects that the various offices are working on, but most importantly to celebrate the round birthday together in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
The employees of Fpt Slovakia welcomed the founders in the spirit of Slovak traditions in traditional costume, with bread and salt. They made use of their presence and the opportunity to learn directly from them about the establishment and the exciting journey of FPT's development over the past 35 years. Speaking on behalf of the founders, they were addressed by FPT Vice Chairman Mr. Bui Quang Ngoc, who shared FPT's success story during his opening remarks, stressing that FPT Slovakia has a priceless meaning in FPT's "billion-dollar" journey.
"FPT Software's goal is to become a $5 billion company in the near future with a rapidly growing business and research that will serve thousands of clients worldwide. Fpt Slovakia with its team of experts will continue to be an important part of this story from the position as the best employer," added Fpt Slovakia's CEO, Coi Tran.
After the official introduction, the founders of FPT had the opportunity and a unique chance to take a "behind the scenes" look at the projects of the Slovak subsidiary and talk not only with the managers but also directly with the developers and testers of our projects.
"When I first met one of the founders, vice CEO of FPT Mr. Tran Dang Hoa, I wasn’t working for FPT back then. After talking to him, I got the opportunity to travel to Vietnam, which was one of the greatest experiences of my life. Today, it's been almost 5 years and I don't regret my decision. It was a great honour to meet the other founders today and show them not only the results of my work, but also the vision of further development of FPT in the field of IoT and Intelligent Building Management," revealed impressions of the visit Tomáš Lörinc, one of the developers at Fpt Slovakia who presented the unique technologies we are working on to the precious visit,
At the end FPT Vice Chairman Mr. Bui Quang Ngoc gave a symbolic gift of the FPT Gene to Fpt Slovakia CEO Coi Tran as a token of appreciation which represents the image of the common spirit and culture of FPT. He also expressed his hope that Fpt Slovakia will persevere in its efforts and continue to shine on the path of success that has propelled the FPT fleet to be among the most successful international IT companies of today.
