OVs scientists propose measures to boost IC industry

Overseas Vietnamese experts and scientists gave recommendations on how to develop Vietnam's integrated circuit (IC) industry to tap opportunities from the 4.0 industrial revolution at a reception hosted by Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam on Friday.

The scientists recommended that Vietnam should focus on IC design and human resources development, as well as the supply of outsourcing services in IC design. Deputy PM Dam stressed that Vietnam needs the support of international experts and scientists, including Vietnamese scientists abroad, to boost the growth of its IC industry in particular and science-technology in general. He said it's necessary to clearly define key products and markets and design effective support policies for IC enterprises to develop in the domestic market and head to the world.
