At the reception, Choi Joo-ho said the centre will cover an area of about 11,600 sq.min Ha Noi’s Ho Tay (West Lake) urban area, which is expected to become a world-class R&D centre. 

 

Choi said it will be the sole centre specialising in mobile phones and network devices, and expected to take the lead in Samsung’s 5G technology development, contributing to the building of smart factories in Viet Nam in the coming time.


In addition, the centre will strengthen the position of Viet Nam as Samsung’s strategic hub in the region, and serve as a headquarters of Samsung in VietNam, he stressed.

 

In turn, Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Nguyen Duc Chung has said Ha Noi will create optimal conditions for the licensing and construction of a new research and development (R&D) centre of Samsung Viet Nam. 


Mr. Chung noted that the municipal authorities have granted licence and completed procedures for the project in the 2015-2016 period. The city also agreed with Samsung Viet Nam’s proposal to build the new R&D centre at a new location, he said.


The chairman voiced his hope that Samsung will accelerate the project to promptly start the construction of the R&D centre.
