A Vietnamese-American who met visiting Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh told him he has always wanted to help Vietnam achieve “technification.”

Sang Ninh, chairman of Westcoast Precision Inc stressed the importance of the human factor in achieving success and expressed confidence in the development of his forefathers’ country.

Westcoast, founded nearly 30 years ago, makes precision parts for the semiconductor, medical and biotech industries.

Chinh was meeting with overseas Vietnamese finance and technology entrepreneurs in San Francisco on May 17 during his visit to the U.S. and U.N.

Nguyen Thi Bich Yen, a Vietnamese national working at semiconductor material producer Soitec U.S, praised young Vietnamese for their prowess and "dare-to-do" spirit.

Don Lam, chairman of investment company VinaCapital, suggested policies to attract talent and promote the image of Vietnam and its policies globally.

Chinh tasked Vietnamese agencies to set up an online channel to exchange information with overseas Vietnamese and create policies that enable them to contribute to the country.

He appreciated Vietnamese businesses in the U.S. for their contribution to Covid-19 prevention and control in Vietnam.

"The greater the challenge, the more united Vietnamese become."

He wished the gathering health, success and prosperity and told the executives to strive for technology and digital transformation and supply chain diversification and contribute to Vietnam and Vietnam-U.S. ties.

He said overseas Vietnamese are an inseparable part of the country, which has many policies to create favorable conditions for them to visit and invest in Vietnam.

Chinh went to the U.S. on May 11 to attend the ASEAN-U.S. Special Summit and make a bilateral visit.
