(MPI) - Deputy Minister of Planning and Investment Tran Duy Dong hold a working session in San Francisco on November 16 (local time) with Jefferey Goss, Associate Vice Provost at the Arizona State University (ASU) of the US, to discuss measures to promote innovation and cooperation in semiconductor manpower training between the two sides.

At the meeting, Deputy Minister Dong and Associate Vice Provost Jefferey had discussed cooperation opportunities on developing training centres, research and development (R&D), and integrated circuit (IC) design and semiconductor parks in Vietnam. The two sides agreed to continue coordinating with the MPI’s Vietnam National Innovation Centre (NIC) to further develop the semiconductor industry in Vietnam.

Hailing the collaboration between ASU and Synopsys Inc. in supporting the establishment of a chip design incubation centre by the NIC, Deputy Minister Dong thanked the AUS for paying attention to cooperating with Vietnam to develop the chip design and semiconductor industry.

He said, Vietnam is willing to join in the global semiconductor-chip ecosystem, and will always create all favourable conditions for the US semiconductor institutes and enterprises to invest and cooperate in training programmes in the country. Vietnam holds large potential to develop the semiconductor ecosystem, such as a stable political system and favourable geographical location. The Vietnamese Government pays great attention to fostering investment cooperation and developing the semiconductor industry, and has assigned the MPI, the Ministry of Information and Communications (MoIT), and other ministries to build an action programme for this industry’s development, and a manpower development project to train 50,000 engineers in this field by 2030. The deputy minister promised more investment incentives and infrastructure for firms in the sector.

In addition, the country has attracted the attention of the US Semiconductor Industry Association and many businesses seeking to explore investment environment for chip production relocation. Some facilities have been in place in the form of the MPI and three high-tech parks welcome investors in the semiconductor industry.

The deputy minister stressed that NIC and these high-tech parks can be seen as a bridge to support the development of Vietnam’s semiconductor industry ecosystem.

Deputy Minister Dong proposed the AUS continue providing support in developing the semiconductor manpower development project, building R&D center, and chip and semiconductor technology parks at the NIC as well as promoting cooperation in innovation through providing scholarship and exchange programmes.

He also asked the ASU to invest in educational facilities in Vietnam, introduce US businesses to explore the country’s investment and business environment, and assist Vietnam in accessing projects within the framework of the US CHIPS and Science Act.

Jeffrey, in reply, briefly informed the MPI deputy minister about the situation of training activities in the semiconductor as well as their survey in Vietnam, and proposed a number of cooperation programmes to develop the semiconductor industry./.
