The new assembly and test facility Intel isbuilding in Vietnam will be both the first investment of this kind by the semiconductor industry in Vietnam, and the largest single factory within the Intel assembly and test network. Intel announced on November 10, 2006 that it will invest USD 1 billion to build a 500,000 square foot (46,451 square meter) facility in Vietnam after an internal study determined that that is the most efficient size for assembly and test facilities. In February 2006, Intel had announced plans for a smaller facility costing USD 300 million. Construction started in March 2006 in the 115-acreSaigon High Tech Park about 15 kilometers from the center of Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon, and now the largest city an commercial and industrial hub in Vietnam. The facility began production in June 2010 and could eventually employ as many as 4,000 people. The Vietnam facility is the seventh site in Intel’s global network of assembly and test sites. Others are in Penang and Kulim, Malaysia; Chengdu, China and San Jose, Costa Rica.
