Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Charles Flanagan TD, was also in attendance at the signing ceremony which was organised by the Embassy of Ireland in Hanoi and Enterprise Ireland.

He welcomed the announcement: "I’m delighted that Anam, one of the foremost companies in the security and monetization of SMS messaging, is strengthening its presence here.

"Key partnerships such as we have witnessed today are vital to the company’s growth and to its plans to focus on the Asian markets.
