The Hoa Lac Hi-tech Park must serve as the country’s hub for hi-tech workforce training, said Chairwoman of the National Assembly Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan during her visit to the Hanoi-based park on November 23.

Ngan hailed it as an incubator for the development of hi-tech projects and an ideal destination for both domestic and foreign investors.

It has become a base for multiple international conglomerates, such as Hanwha Aerospace (the Republic of Korea), Nidec, and Nissan Techno (Japan) and major domestic groups, including Vingroup, FPT, VNPT, and Viettel, she said.

Ngan asked the Ministry of Science and Technology to improve the hi-tech park’s capacity in terms of infrastructure and business environment and to remove obstacles and create the best conditions for R&D and technology transfer in Vietnam so that the park would be a place where innovative ideas and hi-tech products are initiated.

It will help raise the economy’s productivity, efficiency and competitiveness, the Chairwoman added.

Ngan also urged businesses and investors at the park to create more high quality made-in-Vietnam products while the park’s management board must find ways to attract skilled manpower and to make the park a friendly and prestigious destination for technological firms and scientists at home and from overseas.

2022 a quiet time for M&As

Figures from KPMG show that Vietnam’s merger and acquisition (M&A) market was down sharply in 2022 compared to 2021 both in deal numbers and size. No M&A deal worth in excess of $1 billion has been seen this year. It is forecast that the M&A market will be active once more in the next few years as foreign investors become more involved because domestic money is limited due to rising interest rates and lower liquidity.
