Microchip development program to be purposely implemented in HCMC

To take full advantage of the Resolution No.54/2017 of the National Assembly, Vice Chairman of the Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) People’s Committee Tran Vinh Tuyen has just insisted on the need to attract talents, experts, and scientists for the city's microchip development program.

The Resolution No.54/2017 of the National Assembly concerning pilot implementation of special mechanisms and policies for development of Ho Chi Minh City should be made the most at the moment, and the announcement on focusing on microchip development is a suitable aim.

Accordingly, related agencies have to boost their cooperation with Vietnam Post and Telecommunications Group (VNPT), Military Industry and Telecoms Group (Viettel), the Board of Governmental Essential Services, Saigon Hi-tech Park (SHTP), Quang Trung Software City. They also need to increase other partnership within the frame of the program.

Vice chairman Tuyen stated that the common aim of this program is to contribute to the sustainable growth and development of HCMC economy.

Therefore, to boost the commercialization of microchip products, the HCMC Department of Information and Communications (DIC) have to build a strategic plan for the manufacturing of microchip for governmental use, supplying Vietnamese businesses, and export goals.

The DIC also needs to summarize all received suggestions, makes a report on results of activities related to the 2017 microchip development program in HCMC, and prepares an implementation plan for the 2018-2020 period as well as a detailed working schedule for 2018.

Guidance documents regarding the program from the Central Government, the Standing Committee of HCMC, and the HCMC People’s Committee must be timely supplemented.
