President Truong Tan Sang hosts Samsung Vietnam's General Director Han Myong Sup in Hanoi.
State President Truong Tan Sang asked the Samsung Group to help Vietnam develop its support industries, during a reception for Mr. Han Myong Sup, Samsung Vietnam’s General Director, in Hanoi on March 30.
President Sang expressed his delight over the Group’s thriving business results, especially in Thai Nguyen and Bac Ninh provinces and Ho Chi Minh City, adding that he hopes Samsung can attain further success and realize its export target of $50 billion to become the leading electronics company in Vietnam.
He hailed the Group’s cooperation with local scientific organizations in setting up a research and development (R&D) center in the country.
Mr. Han told the Vietnamese leader of the progress at Samsung’s projects in Vietnam, with the first smart TVs being manufactured in Ho Chi Minh City.
Its plants employ more than 110,000 workers and exports have totaled $32 billion, he said, adding that a number of conferences on support industries have been held by the Group since 2014 to attract partners to join its production chain.
He believes that with the government’s support there will be more Vietnamese enterprises joining its chain, which will increase the localization rate in their electronics products.
A number of outstanding Vietnamese representatives have been chosen to attend international technical skills competitions through Samsung’s programs to encourage young talent, Mr. Han said.
When the R&D center becomes operational in Hanoi, he said, more engineers and workers will be equipped with advanced knowledge.
