HÀ NỘI — An IT park covering an area of about 274ha will be built in the northern province of Bắc Ninh, according to the provincial People’s Committee.
The IT park is expected to have a workforce of about 20,000 labourers and experts.
The planning will set the scene for the establishment of an IT hub in the province and the development of infrastructure for IT application and R&D activities, and accelerate the growth of the IT industry.
A centre for R&D activities in the field is also expected to be set up to provide professional training, facilitate technology transfer, and offer support for IT start-ups.
By the end of 2021, Bắc Ninh had 16 industrial parks, covering a total area of close to 6,400ha, 10 of which have been put into use, and the occupancy reached 91.2 per cent.
It has also established 31 industrial clusters, 21 of which were operational.
Many international tech giants, such as Samsung, Canon, Foxconn and Nokia, have set up base in the province’s industrial parks and clusters. — VNS
