Hanoi (VNA) – Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam
hosted a reception in Hanoi on June 16 for a delegation of Overseas Vietnamese
experts and scientists who gave recommendations on how to develop Vietnam’s integrated
circuit (IC) industry to tap opportunities from the 4.0 industrial revolution.

The delegates held that Vietnam’s IC technology has seen
considerable progress in the recent 10 years in terms of design. However, IC
production remains modest, they said.

According to Prof. Dr. Dang Luong Mo, the domestic IC human
resources have yet to meet requirements in terms of both quality and quantity.
He proposed that Vietnam should train tens of thousands of additional IC
engineers in the next five years.

He stressed the need for synchronous policies as well as
national-level coordination for the sustainable IC development, along with the creation
of an IC ecosystem nationwide.

The scientists recommended that Vietnam should focus on IC
design and human resources development, as well as the supply of outsourcing
services in IC design.

At the same time, it is necessary to tap the resources of
world leading experts, including overseas Vietnamese, for the teaching and technology
transfer activities in the field in Vietnam, they said.

Lauding the delegates’ ideas, Deputy PM Dam stressed that Vietnam
needs the support of international experts and scientists, including Vietnamese
scientists abroad, to boost the growth of its IC industry in particular and
science-technology in general.

He highlighted the significance of forming a network
connecting Overseas Vietnamese experts and scientists with domestic research
facilities.

The Deputy PM also highlighted the need to clearly define
key products and markets, thus designing effective support policies for IC
enterprises, most of which are startup enterprises, to develop in the domestic
market and head to the world.-VNA
