HCM City – Intel Products Việt Nam (IPV) celebrated its 10th anniversary of the launch of its business activities in Việt Nam on Thursday.
Intel’s announcement to invest in Việt Nam in 2006 helped put the country on the global map in the IT and electronics industry, attracting industry suppliers and service providers and bolstering both economic and social outcomes.
Over the past 10 years, Intel has accelerated the pace of investment in Việt Nam through key initiatives such as the development of an electronics cluster and the opening of a chip testing and assembly facility in Sài Gòn Hi-Tech Park in District 9 in HCM City.
Intel in collaboration with industry partners helped modernise the top engineering and technical vocational universities in Việt Nam through the Higher Engineering Education Alliance program (HEEAP) with an ABET-accredited outcome by 2018.
In addition, Intel’s K-12 programme has effectively trained over 150,000 educators in 28 cities and revolutionised how students learn.
Intel has also engaged the Government of Việt Nam on the implementation of policies, such as the E-Customs Systems (VNACCS) which simplifies customs clearance and facilitates more efficient trade.
IPV has embarked on green initiatives that include investments in the largest operating solar power system in HCM City and in Việt Nam that generates over 321,000 kWh of power, offsetting 221,300 kg of CO2 emissions yearly. Another 16 energy conservation projects were also implemented in 2016 that have achieved a remarkable 4,678,845 kWh in annual savings.
