Vietnam: An Emerging Force in Asia's Microelectronics Supply Chain

Webinar | June 23, 2021 | 9:00 AM Vietnam / 10:00 AM Singapore / 7:00 PM PDT

Given the ongoing China-U.S. trade tensions, companies have been moving production bases to Vietnam to diversify risk. At the same time, foreign Multinational Corporations (MNCs) have been setting up new manufacturing bases or expanding existing capacities. Vietnam’s political stability and a young, vibrant, and productive middle class, coupled with solid economic growth, means that the country is poised to become the next manufacturing hub of the world. Companies looking to invest in Vietnam can also take advantage of several Free Trade Agreements (FTAs), with many agreements signed through its membership in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and the recent RCEP.

The electronics industry, a priority sector set by the Vietnamese government, has impressively developed since 2010.  Vietnam’s active participation in the global integration of electronics manufacturing has enabled it to engage deeply in global value chains. Today, Vietnam is a favorable investment hotspot for the electronics and semiconductor industry, with major MNCs having a manufacturing presence in the country. This webinar brings together speakers from the government, industry park developers, and major MNCs to provide an update on Vietnam’s investment climate, benefits of investing, and sharing of investors’ experiences. The goal is to promote and grow the electronics and semiconductor industry in Vietnam as a compliment to the entire Southeast Asian electronics and semiconductor ecosystem.

Who Should Attend

  • Existing companies/investors looking to expand capacities
  • Potential companies/investors looking to set up a presence in Southeast Asia/Vietnam
  • Companies/Investors looking to understand and engage the electronics/semiconductor eco-system
