According to the Ministry of Economic Affairs’ IT personnel report (METI), the shortage of IT human resources in Japan is increasingly serious. Human resource supply will peak in 2019, then gradually decline over the years. It is expected that by 2030, Japan will lack about 590,000 IT workers.

Especially, it will not only stop at the simple manufacturing process level but will also take a position in the analysis chain, the design is more complicated and more active.
On the other hand, in the context of industrial revolution 4.0 has been affecting all sectors of the economy, especially production activities; Automated production models in developed countries are cheaper than concentrated production by cheap labor in developing countries. Export industries, including Vietnam’s software exports, are forecast to be more or less affected, posing challenges for the country’s economy while currently relying heavily on exports. Therefore, identifying the focus on developing artificial intelligence technology is an urgent and important requirement in optimizing the quality and enhancing the field of software export in Vietnam.
Predicting artificial intelligence will be a breakthrough technology in the coming time, Vietnam is to take advantage of the opportunities that the Industrial Revolution 4.0 offers businesses in the Japanese market in particular and an opportunity to transform strongly for the Vietnamese economy in general.
