Intel Products Vietnam has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Saigon Hi-Tech Park to promote the country's hi-tech supporting industries with an emphasis on semiconductor products and services.
The chip giant will, in particular, co-operate with the park and organize activities to improve the capabilities of local suppliers such as a workshop on suppliers' qualification criteria and factory visits to advise on technology and operational processes.
The US-based company will also assists the park in building a quality testing center in Ho Chi Minh City over the next three years to assess local suppliers' products and services potentially capable of becoming Intel's suppliers.
In return, the park has agreed to support Intel's existing suppliers.
The chip maker opened a billion-dollar plant in the park in District 9 last month, the company's seventh and its biggest in the world.
