He asked Intel to continue investing in Vietnam in both depth and breadth, noting that the Government is prioritising the investments applying high and clean technology and contributing to the development of digital economic infrastructure and high-quality human resources.
PM Chinh also called for Intel to help the country create an ecosystem for innovation and startups, improve labour productivity, and diversify supply chains, adding that the Vietnamese Government is ready to support businesses, including FDI companies, to operate fruitfully.
He voiced his belief that with the existing foundation and determination, Intel’s investment in Vietnam will reach a new level and generate more effectiveness.
