Deputy Prime Minister Vũ Đức Đam and representatives of Đà Nẵng and ministries officially inaugurated the first stage of the Đà Nẵng Information Technology Park (DITP) after one year of construction at a ceremony yesterday.
The DITP, which is the country’s largest centralised information technology centre, is being built in central Việt Nam’s ‘Silicon Valley’ with total investment of $120 million in two stages.
The park, invested and built by Trung Nam Group, will be open to its first investors from the second quarter of 2019 with the aim of creating more opportunities for IT investors flocking to the city by 2023.
It expects to create revenue of $1.5 billion each year with 25,000 jobs and a satellite city of 100,000 people.
“The inauguration of the country’s largest IT park was seen as a positive action for Đà Nẵng’s leadership in preparation for the 4th Industrial Revolution, and creating a magnet to giant investors in IT,” Đam said at the ceremony.
“The city has achieved its dream of opening a hub of innovation that connects IT parks, research institutes and universities nationwide and globally,” he said.
The deputy PM also emphasized the government would support businesses in promoting innovation and technological application in the future.
The park, to the west of the city, is located near Liên Chiểu Port and logistics centre, the North-South Expressway and railway system, and hi-tech industrial zones.
Trung Nam Group has started construction of an apartment and office complex for IT businesses on 8.7ha as a prelude to the second stage.
The city also celebrated the technical completion of a link road from the IT park and Đà Nẵng Hi-Tech Park on the occasion of the 44th anniversary of Đà Nẵng’s Liberation Day.
