According to Mr. Duangdej Yuaikwarmdee, foreign producers and investors find the appeal of low-cost, large domestic market in Vietnam, therefore, they has planned a long term investment despite the challenge of the economic structure. For example, Korean Samsung Company signed a contract to construct the second factories (with the value of 2 billion dollars) in Vietnam. It is estimated to reach a capacity of 120 million equipments, which is double to the current capacity in Vietnam. Besides, other electronic companies have continued to implement investment in Vietnam. For instance, Nokia launched the first factory in Vietnam (300 million dollars). It is expected to create 10,000 jobs and produce 45 million handsets per quarter. In addition, a producer of printers and copiers, Fuji Xerox, also built a factory with 90.2 million dollars in Hai Phong. This is the first Japanese factory in ASEAN countries to meet the rising demands. This will promote exports of electronic products, especially mobile phones, which have increased significantly in recent years and accounted for 24.5% of the total export turnover of Vietnam.

“The objective to double the export volume of Vietnam electronics in 2017 could be reached. However, to increase the number of companies which can export to foreign market, especially with Vietnam brands, is a big challenge. Hence, domestic enterprises need more efforts. The sharply growth in producing electronics has created a lot of chances for small companies to provide their equipments or services to the big ones. This is a good sign and also good opportunity for Vietnam electronic industry.”, Mr. Duangdej Yuaikwarmdee also added.
