Expressing support for the group’s plan to expand investment in Vietnam, he wished that it would not only assemble electronics but also extend its technological capacity and assist Vietnam in launching an e-government, a field in which it has wide experience.
The leader lauded the group’s investment in building the Office of the Research and Development Centre in Hanoi, adding that he has assigned the Ministry of Planning and Investment and the municipal authorities to consider the group’s suggestions, ensure the progress of the work and promptly report to him if necessary.
The PM proposed that Samsung continue offering training and technological transfer to Vietnamese supporting enterprises, especially small- and medium-sized ones, to join the supply of materials and spare parts to the group.
Choi, for his part, said Samsung Vietnam strives to fulfill set targets and achieve growth in different areas.
He also suggested ministries, agencies and Bac Ninh province create favourable conditions for the group, particularly the Samsung Display Vietnam, to further contribute to Vietnam’s economic growth./.
