VietNamNet Bridge - To be able to take full advantage of the opportunities in the digital economy, Vietnam needs a reasonable long-term development strategy for the electronics & IC industry. Many East Asian nations followed this path to become ‘tigers’. China, South Korea and China are the best-known success stories. Experts point out that Vietnamese enterprises have not made huge investments in R&D, and do not own core technologies, which has made it difficult for them to reduce production costs and become more competitive.

Jim Cathey How is Vietnam positioned to capitalise on the upcoming launch of 5G networks across the globe? The newest generation of cellular technology, also known as 5G, is really close to launching. The biggest initial wave of 5G deployment will likely take place in 2019, with early adopters including North America, Europe, South Korea, Japan, and China. The countries that adopt 5G are expected to experience disproportionate economic gains compared to those that lag behind. For Southeast Asian countries like Vietnam, 5G is expected to be fuel for the new Industry 4.0 phenomenon. I believe that the country's leaders are wise enough to see the tremendous benefits that this next-generation technology would bring to Vietnam and its citizens. Therefore, they are likely to pounce on opportunities to facilitate 5G development. In addition, it is apparent that many industries in Vietnam will benefit from 5G’s faster connectivity, such as telecommunications, smartphones, … [Read more...] about Qualcomm gives wings to Vietnam to enter 4.0 era
Large corrugated metal roofs, small corrugated metal roofs and farmland. Satellite images of Tan Vinh Hiep Commune in the southern province of Binh Duong don’t show much more, but on the earth, these pictures are worth more than the proverbial thousand words – they tell a thousand stories, and counting. The commune stands just an hour's drive north of Ho Chi Minh City in Tan Uyen Town, and the satellite images are typical of Vietnam's economy in the 21st century. The large corrugated metal roofs are those that cover factories spanning thousands of square meters. Such factories have been the core economic component of both Tan Uyen and the whole province for decades. And most of these factories belong to foreign direct investment (FDI) companies. Surrounding the factories are the small corrugated metal roofs, just over 2 meters wide, dozens of meters long, branching out from the roads and alleyways around the factories. These are the roofs of dormitories for migrant workers … [Read more...] about The dark side of FDI in Vietnam
