HCM City — The Sài Gòn High-Tech Park (SHTP) should tie up with investment companies for funding for technology and research projects, Politburo member and HCM City Party Secretary Nguyễn Thiện Nhân said during a visit to the park on Tuesday.
“I’ve recognised a good trend of many scientific and technology enterprises starting their businesses in SHTP.”
“The SHTP’s Enterprise Incubation should work closely with the city Science and Technology Department and HCM City Communist Youth Union to set up a website for business start-ups with information about the city’s support programmes, potential projects and investment companies.”
The 15-year-old SHTP has attracted many global technology companies like Samsung and Intel, which have plants here.
It has domestic enterprises researching and developing modern semiconductor, nano and bio technologies.
Nhân said: “The SHTP’s project deployment experience has greatly contributed to the creation of a legal framework for developing high-tech parks in the city and around the country.
“It has also created a support chain for high-tech parks in nearby industrial parks.”
Hailing the SHTP management for the park’s achievements, he exhorted it to accomplish even more, keep abreast of the construction plans of the Scientific and Technology Park, closely work with relevant authorities and promote training and research at universities.
According to the management, as of June the park had 36,719 workers, 376 of them foreign nationals.
On the same day Nhân also visited the Sài Gòn Silicon City and Minh Nguyên Enterprises, which produces components for Samsung and the smart anti-flooding pumping system installed on Nguyễn Hữu Cảnh Street in Bình Thạnh District. — VNS
