“The government assigned the MPI in collaboration with Hanoi People’s Committee to deal with Samsung’s proposal to develop an R&D centre and support the investor in completing the procedures to be able to implement the construction on time. If there are difficulties going beyond their mandates, the authorities will need to report to the prime minister's office for approval,” said the PM.

The prime minister asked Samsung to continue supporting local enterprises in training human resources and transfer technologies to supporting enterprises, especially small- and medium-sized ones so that they can join the group’s supply chain.
