SEMI Announces Vietnam Semiconductor Strategy Summit

Executive Conference to Accelerate Industry Development in Ho Chi Minh City

SAN JOSE, Calif. — July 17, 2013   Executives from the world’s leading microelectronics companies will meet with delegates representing Vietnamese government, academia, research, and industry to explore and discuss the key strategies and opportunities in the growing Vietnam semiconductor industry at the SEMI Vietnam Semiconductor Strategy Summit. The Summit will be held on September 9-10 at the InterContinental Asiana Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City. The event includes an optional tour of the Saigon Hi-Tech Park where Intel’s assembly and packaging plant is located, followed by a one-day executive conference and networking event.

Following Intel’s successful $1 billion in manufacturing investment in Ho Chi Minh City, and the government’s recent decision to invest in a 200mm/0.18 micron front-end fab, Vietnam will become an alternative design and production location for electronics and semiconductor manufacturers in Southeast Asia.  The executive event will bring together the key decision-makers shaping the future of the industry in Vietnam and help forge the connections and relationships that will drive further growth over the next decade and beyond.  A featured presentation will provide perspectives on infrastructure and technology requirements for the new 200mm fab presented by executives from M+W and FabMax.  Additional invited speakers will include:

  • Nguyen Quan, minister of Science & Technology, Government of Vietnam
  • Alain Astier, group vice president, STMicroelectronics
  • Le Manh Ha, vice president of Ho Chi Min City People’s Committee
  • Nguyen Minh Hong, vice minister of Information and Communication
  • Bettina Weiss, vice president, Global Business Development, SEMI

While both the Vietnamese and Ho Chi Minh City governments have made investments in both front-end and back-end semiconductor manufacturing a priority, advancing the semiconductor industry in Vietnam will also require development of the local supply chain, allocation of water and energy resources, a growing skilled workforce, partnerships with established microelectronic markets, and other infrastructure needs.

The SEMI Vietnam Semiconductor Strategy Summit is organized by SEMI and co-organized by the Saigon Hi-Tech Park (SHTP) and the Ho Chi Minh City Semiconductor Industry Association (HSIA). Participation in the SEMI Vietnam Semiconductor Strategy Summit is available exclusively through corporate sponsorship or by invitation.

Current sponsors include Kulicke & Soffa, Millice, KLA-Tencor, Disco, Advantest, and FabMax.  Several sponsorship categories are provided that offer different levels exposure and benefits.  For additional information on corporate sponsorships and to inquire about an invitation, please contact  Email Contact or visit  www.semi.org/vietnam
