SEMI announces 2nd Vietnam Semiconductor Strategy Summit Following the successful inaugural event in 2013, the 2nd annual SEMI Vietnam Semiconductor Strategy Summit will be held September 16-17, 2014 at the InterContinental Asiana Saigon Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City. This executive event brings together key decision-makers shaping the future of the industry in Vietnam, and international participants from major companies in the semiconductor manufacturing supply chain. The connections and relationships forged during the Summit will drive further growth over the next decade and beyond. 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 2nd Vietnam Semiconductor Strategy Summit. “Vietnam remains committed to entering the global microelectronics world, moving beyond backend and breaking ground on its first 200mm semiconductor front-end fab in the Saigon Hi-Tech Park,” said Kai Fai Ng, president of SEMI Southeast Asia. “While the first Summit provided a platform to discuss the requirements for a sustainable local supply chain, workforce development and R&D collaboration, many challenges still remain as the fab project nears the approval stage. From infrastructure and process technology to device design and IP creation and protection, this year’s Vietnam Semiconductor Strategy Summit will provide a platform to advance these critically important discussions.” Global stakeholders with an interest in Vietnam’s semiconductor market — from the equipment, materials, and device and R&D communities — are invited to share their vision, insights and outlook with Vietnam’s local business, technology and educational communities. The 2nd annual SEMI Vietnam Semiconductor Strategy Summit is organized by SEMI (www.semi.org) 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 through sponsorships and individual registrations.
