HCM City (VNA) – Permanent Vice Chairman of the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee Le Thanh Liem has committed all possible support for Intel Products Vietnam (IPV) to do effective business for mutual growth.

He made the statement during a reception in Ho Chi Minh City on July 24 for Director of Global Public Affairs and Sustainability at Intel Corporation Todd Brady.

Liem congratulated IPV on its achievements after 14 years of operating in Vietnam, adding that IPV still plays a key role in manufacturing and exports at the Saigon Hi-Tech Park (SHTP).

He hailed IPV for paying attention to not only production and trade but also workforce training, contributing to improving the city’s competitiveness.

Additionally, IPV also helps foster bilateral ties between Vietnam and the US, thus facilitating Vietnam’s global integration, especially in high-tech and knowledge-based economy.

Brady, for his part, said Intel is expanding investment in many countries to manufacture new products, and building factories in the US, Ireland and Europe which are specialised in virtual reality, artificial intelligence and unmanned auto applications.

He expressed wish to receive further support from the city to expand plants and pledged to partner with the city in fields of strength such as hi-tech human resources and smart urban development, virtual reality and artificial intelligence.

According to him, nearly 3,000 workers are working for Intel in Vietnam. From 2010 to late 2018, IPV earned about 26 billion USD from exports.-VNA
