Business / Tech News



As a technology professional, I often skim the tech headlines and yesterday saw that chipmaker Intel (think Pentium) plans to invest up to $1 billion in Vietnam. The story was on CNN. The mega computer company is building a manufacturing facility in Ho Chi Mihn City that will employ up to 1200 people. Its the largest American investment in Vietnam since 1975 and will obviously benefit the Vietnamese economy, especially since other technology manufacturers often locate their plants next to a major supplier like Intel.

Hopefully, there will be some benefits for Americans traveling to Vietnam (for adoption, business, or pleasure) such as increased international flights, more people who have some English proficiency, and better penetration of all the tech gadgets we can't seem to live without.
