About 20 years ago, Vietnam started the agenda to enter the manufacturing sector on a global basis. With a steady increase in technology, infrastructure, educated workforce and global investment, Vietnam has continued to increase its production output at a noticeable pace. To accomplish this growth and the strong forecast to continue, infrastructure in Vietnam was in need to be upgraded in all aspects of support in the disciplines of: Transportation, Communication, Power Grids, Technology Expertise, Skilled Managers and Educated Laborers.
