AT&T names exec for Vietnam

AT&T named a new executive to be in charge of its efforts in Vietnam, which doesn't sound like huge news, but it comes out a time when foreign governments and foreign telecom firms alike are taking a closer look at this country.

NTT DoCoMo established an office in Vietnam recently to do just that, and the U.S. government co-hosted an IT and communications trade event there last week. It sounds like we'll hear more from telecom carriers and vendors interested in doing business in Vietnam in some way.
