Vietnam has the opportunity to deeply participate in the semiconductor industry and aspires to become an important link in the global supply chain. Although there are great strides, Vietnam is still facing the problem of shortage of quality human resources in the semiconductor industry. To overcome this problem, NIC has cooperated with German industrial giant Siemens EDA to develop Vietnam’s semiconductor ecosystem, especially to help remove the bottleneck of high-quality human resources in this field. 

Speaking at the conference, Deputy Minister of Planning and Investment Tran Duy Dong said: “I believe that NIC signing an MOU with Siemens EDA, cooperating with the Ministry of Education and Training to research and develop the Project” “Developing and granting copyright of Siemens semiconductor circuit design software to universities” is a practical activity. The cooperation between the State – Enterprises, the State – Institutes and Enterprises – Institutions is increasingly deepening, gradually developing semiconductor human resources through training and technology transfer programs, supporting tools, software, and techniques, contributing to achieving the goal of 50 thousand semiconductor engineers by 2030.” 

Deputy Minister of Planning and Investment Tran Duy Dong spoke at the conference

Ms. Nina Lin highly appreciated the strategies and policies that the Vietnamese Government is implementing to develop industries, especially the semiconductor electronics industry. Moreover, this is an important time for cooperation between Siemens and the Government, ministries and branches of Vietnam to support the acceleration of innovation for businesses, build an industrial ecosystem as well as develop human resource training for the semiconductor industry.

Vice President in charge of ASEAN and Taiwan, Siemens EDA, Nina Lin spoke

At the Conference, Mr. Lincoln Lee, Vice President of Technical Affairs for ASEAN and Taiwan, introduced Siemens EDA’s comprehensive set of technology solutions for the design and production of semiconductor IC and electronic circuit boards with the strong participation of AI. It helps businesses design more complex and smarter electronic products faster. Siemens EDA technology solutions integrating AI allow the most comprehensive design and creation of digital copies of products, increasing efficiency and minimizing repetitive work. This also provides analytical and predictive capabilities, guiding designers to gain insight and provide optimal solutions for the product. 

Mr. Lincoln Lee, Vice President in charge of technical affairs for ASEAN and Taiwan shared

Siemens EDA is ready to cooperate with Vietnamese agencies, especially the Ministry of Planning and Investment to promote the semiconductor electronics industry. Ms. Nina Lin also said that Siemens EDA will sponsor Siemens’ most advanced chip and board design software suite for Vietnam through NIC and will provide training services and accompany NIC in promoting developing human resources for semiconductor IC design in particular and the semiconductor electronics industry in general. 

And at this event, Siemens EDA and Vietbay – authorized distributors of Siemens EDA in Vietnam and representatives of NIC awarded sponsored software to typical universities with the task of training human resources for the semiconductor industry that the Government has assigned. 


Thus, the NIC National Innovation Center and Siemens EDA signed a cooperation agreement, contributing to realizing the dream of Vietnamese people producing semiconductor chips and enhancing the national semiconductor ecosystem. 

Vietbay, an authorized distributor of Siemens EDA and a comprehensive strategic partner of Siemens DISW in Vietnam, is proud to be the coordinating unit to organize this important event. With more than 20 years of experience in the field of consulting, providing, and training technology transfer, Vietbay is committed to providing comprehensive IC and PCB design and manufacturing solutions with services and added value. From there, Vietbay helps customers master technology, develop quickly and sustainably in the digital age.
