Many international hi-tech firms are competing for investment opportunities in Vietnam due to the country’s enhancements of workforce and infrastructure, Choi Joo Ho, CEO at Samsung Vietnam, told the opening ceremony of the Samsung Innovation Campus (SIC) 2023 - 24 education program in Hanoi on Friday.

He underlined that Vietnam has demonstrated its role as part of the global supply chain.

Multiple international tech companies have entered Vietnam to sound out opportunities to make investment, so the demand for tech talent is surging, Choi said.

He expected the Samsung-sponsored education program to help Vietnam turn out numerous skilled tech workers to meet the needs of international companies which do business in the Southeast Asian nation.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Nguyen Thi Bich Ngoc, Deputy Minister of Planning and Investment, called on South Korea’s Samsung to expand its operation in various fields such as training, artificial intelligence (AI), big data, Internet of Things (IoT), semiconductor, smart production and cybersecurity.

The SIC program, co-held by Samsung and the Vietnam National Innovation Center (NIC), is aimed at equipping young people with knowledge about AI, IoT, and big data.

Some 200 Vietnamese students from the Vietnam National University of Hanoi and FPT University will benefit from the program, which features two AI training courses, two IoT training courses and two big data training ones. These courses run until August.

The Samsung Innovation Campus program geared up for young people has been launched in 36 countries worldwide such as the United States, Germany, Spain, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand.

The program kicked off in Vietnam for the first time in 2019.
