HP to have computer assembly plant in Vietnam

HP will cooperate with Taiwan’s Foxconn group to build a computer assembly factory in northern Vietnam, revealed HP Executive Vice Chairman Todd Bradley, who is in Hanoi.

Bradley said HP will be in charge of system design while Foxconn is responsible for production and technology transfer. This factory will supply computers for the local market and for export. However, he didn’t make clear whether this plant will be run by HP or simply be an outsource assembly line.

Bradley also said that the mini laptop named “Mini-Note”, the latest product of HP, will be distributed in Vietnam at the same time as the global market, in May 2008.

“We see big opportunities in Southeast Asia and we will continue investing in products, services and people here,” he said.
