Intel is the first major foreign investor in high technology in Vietnam. The country’s Ministry of Investment and Planning has given Intel an investment license to build a $300 million (US) assembly and test facility to produce chips and computer parts. When completed, this factory will be the largest computer equipment and manufacturing plant in Vietnam. Projected to employ approximately 1,200 people, this site will be the seventh assembly site in Intel’s global network.
Intel also has a sales and marketing office in Ho Chi Minh City, providing world-class sales and support at the original equipment manufacturer (OEM), developer and end-user levels. Set up since 1997, this office drives Intel's initiatives, technologies, products and services into the marketplace, creating demand and promoting Intel's role in the Internet.
Vietnam is a beautiful country with many fascinating ancient cities. Among them is the bustling city of Ho Chi Minh, which offers many modern conveniences—while still managing to preserve its traditional charms.
