Ho Chi Minh City Part chief Dinh La Thang has praised Intel Corporation for its contribution to the city’s development and for bringing products made in Vietnam to the international market.
The secretary of the municipal Party Committee, along with Le Thanh Liem, vice-chairman of the city’s administration, visited the factory of Intel Products Vietnam, located in the Saigon Hi-Tech Park in District 9, on Tuesday afternoon.
During his conversation with the company’s leaders, Secretary Thang asserted that Ho Chi Minh City is ready for the fourth industrial revolution, in which Intel plays a significant role.
The official promised to provide the firm with favorable conditions to extend its operation in the southern metropolis.
He praised the corporation’s achievements in Vietnam in the past decade, highlighting that it had contributed some US$10 million to the local budget.
Intel Products Vietnam’s export value and capacity have increased by nearly one hundred times in the past 10 years, accounting for 12.4 percent of the city’s export revenue, the city’s Party chief continued.
Most importantly, Intel has introduced products manufactured in Vietnam to the rest of the world and cooperated with local universities in training high-quality human resources, Thang stated.
He asked the company to review its results in the past and focus on future accomplishments, spurring the development of the Saigon Hi-Tech Park and facilitating Ho Chi Minh City’s plan to become a smart city with quality personnel.
He also expressed his hope that Intel would allow other businesses to cooperate and thus attract further investment into Vietnam.
According to Sherry Boger, general manager of Intel Products Vietnam, the development of the Southeast Asian country is similar to that of Intel.
The corporation has applied the most advanced technology to the operation of its factory in Vietnam, Boger continued.
