Hue encouraged the Kinh Bac City Development Holding Corporation (KBC) to invest in industrial zones in Soc Son and Dong Anh districts to attract more foreign businesses.

He expressed his hope that major technology groups will set up search and development (R&D) and innovation centres in Ha Noi in the way the Republic of Korea’s Samsung Group has done.

The official highlighted the fact that the capital city is home to 82 percent of universities, 65 percent of scientists and 80 percent of key scientific and technological research potential of the country.

At the working session, leading officials of Heesung Electronics, Goertek Technology, Mitac Computer and Luxshare ICT Vietnam showed their hope to expand production or shift the most important production lines to Ha Noi.

KBC Chairman Dang Thanh Tam also said he wants to take advantage of the capital city’s ideal conditions for his investment projects, thus helping attract more FDI for the city.

General Director of Foxconn Vietnam Zhuo Xianhong said that the position near the airport and high-quality human resources are the advantages of Ha Noi in developing hi-tech industries.
