On the afternoon of November 17 (local time), Central Party Committee Member, Secretary of the Municipal Party Committee, and Head of the National Assembly Delegation of the city, Mr. Nguyen Van Quang, led a leadership delegation of Da Nang to visit Nvidia Corporation in Silicon Valley (California, USA).

During the working session, the city's leadership and Nvidia Corporation exchanged views on the global trends in artificial intelligence (AI) development and the potential for establishing and expanding cooperation between the company and the city. This is particularly relevant given the growing relationship between the United States and Vietnam, focusing on promoting investment and innovation.

With the global AI boom, Nvidia, along with its strength in producing components for AI, is predicted to surpass many formidable competitors to become the world's highest-grossing chip design company in 2023.

The company looks forward to future collaborative programs in the semiconductor industry with Vietnam in general and Da Nang in particular.

Speaking at the working session, Secretary Nguyen Van Quang stated that, based on its strengths, in the semiconductor industry development strategy, Da Nang is focusing on advancing chip design, semiconductor production, and gradually developing testing and packaging of chips.

To realize the goal of becoming one of Vietnam's leading destinations for semiconductor investment, the city is researching and implementing favorable policies, providing suitable investment support, and developing a high-quality workforce to meet the requirements of companies.

Sharing information with Nvidia, Secretary of the Municipal Party Committee mentioned that the city currently has 250 semiconductor and electronics businesses with 10,500 employees, including 550 semiconductor design engineers. The annual target is to have about 1,000 graduates from reputable universities in the city.

Secretary Quang expects Nvidia to collaborate and support Da Nang in developing the semiconductor industry, especially in contributing ideas to build mechanisms, preferential policies, investment support; technology transfer, workforce training; infrastructure investment support, and enhancing access to AI solutions.

Accepting the invitation from the Secretary of the Municipal Party Committee, Nvidia's leadership representative stated that they will soon visit Da Nang to survey and explore the development of specific semiconductor programs. They express the desire to continue receiving the city's interest, companionship, and support.
