Besides a monthly basic salary, the city will provide an initial subsidy of VNĐ100 million (US$$4,315) to each selected scientist and expert after they sign a labour contract.

Each selected expert and scientist working at the SHTP Management Board and ICST will receive an incentive allowance of one per cent of the cost for each research project, but not less than VNĐ50 million ($2,150) and no more than VNĐ1 billion ($43,150)per person per research project.

In 2018, the committee approved a new policy that will help attract experts and scientists to work for the local government, particularly in the fields of IT, biotech, logistics, nanotech and the support industry in the 2018-20 period.

The city aims to select the most suitable experts who can help develop high-tech zones, economic zones and industrial zones. — VNS
