The global trends of AI, green, and digital transformation are crucial for sustainable development, and Hyphen Deux is excited to be part of this transformative journey. The DX Summit 2024 served as a premier event for aligning with the government’s efforts to implement the National Digital Transformation Program swiftly and effectively. The summit emphasized the importance of these transformations in achieving Vietnam’s goal, becoming a high-income, strong, and prosperous country by 2045.

Key themes of the DX Summit 2024 included:

  • Digital and Green Transformation, promoting ESG policies
  • Data collection and management
  • Digital trust
  • Development and application of new technologies: 5G, AI, IoT
  • Semiconductor chips – trends, opportunities, and potential

The Vietnam Software & IT Services Association (VINASA) hosted a seminar on semiconductor industry development on May 29, as part of the summit. Nguyen Thi Le Quyen, Deputy Director of the National Innovation Centre under the Ministry of Planning and Investment (MPI), highlighted the semiconductor industry’s remarkable compound annual growth rate of 14% over the past two decades. She projected that the industry is on track to become a trillion-dollar sector by 2030.

Quyen emphasized the anticipated surge in workforce demand, noting that by 2030, China is expected to require 400,000 semiconductor professionals, the United States 67,000, with intense competition for talent in South Korea, Japan, and India. This underscores the critical need for Vietnam to prioritize workforce training and development to stay competitive in the semiconductor field.

Nguyễn Thiện Nghĩa, Deputy Director of the Department of Information Technology Industry under the Ministry of Information and Communications, proposed several solutions to bolster Vietnam’s semiconductor human resources. He stressed that beyond training, Vietnam must attract businesses to invest locally to stimulate the domestic semiconductor market. “Despite Vietnam’s many advantages, its contribution to the global semiconductor industry remains minimal,” Nghĩa remarked.

Nghĩa further advocated for promoting the formation of a support ecosystem for chip manufacturing businesses. Such an ecosystem would enhance Vietnam’s appeal to major manufacturing corporations, potentially transforming the country into a hub for semiconductor chip production. “To achieve this, Vietnam needs to address policy shortcomings, prioritize the semiconductor industry, accelerate human resource training, and expand cooperation and investment opportunities in the sector,” he added.
