Ho Chi Minh City organises first-ever Microelectromechanical Systems and Sensors workshop

Vietnam’s first-ever Microelectromechanical Systems and Sensors (MEMS) workshop will be held in Ho Chi Minh City on November 9 to enhance public awareness of the potential for MEMS and sensor technologies.

According to Dr Le Hoai Quoc, president of the Saigon High-Tech Park (SHTP) Management Authority, the organiser of the workshop, MEMS will help connect investors with potential projects and researchers with investment funds, as well as attract investors in manufacturing MEMS and sensor products and create local supply chains.

“The workshop’s objectives correlate highly with the policies of the Ho Chi Minh City leadership which aims to foster participation and dialogue between various stakeholders, including governments, scientific and academic communities, and share knowledge, experiences, and mutual interests,” Quoc said at the recent press briefing introducing the workshop held in Ho Chi Minh City.

The workshop, Quoc added, also aims to provide an enlightening and informative picture as to the viability and importance of creating MEMS technology infrastructure as the catalyst for the creation of a critical commercialisation vehicle in Vietnam.

Quoc added that the Ho Chi Minh City Party Committee and the Ho Chi Minh People’s Committee intend to launch a comprehensive plan to effectively transform the country and the city from a top producer of electronic components to a major player in the global digital economy.

Tom Nguyen, CEO of US sensor company DunAn Sensing, added that the workshop will feature world-class experts from the US who will address various MEMS applications that will enhance life quality for Vietnamese citizens.
