Speaking at the meeting, Mr. Ha Minh Hiep said that the group at STAMEQ was the first group to approach smart manufacturing (SM). After accessing information from Taiwan and surveying Vietnamese enterprises, he said that currently, SM was a very new content for management agencies and enterprises. Thus, he believed that with the evaluation and technical support of the Taiwanese side, they would help Vietnamese enterprises understand more about smart manufacturing and how to access effectively.
Taiwan was known as a place with a lot of experience in manufacturing industry. Therefore, during this trip, CPC representative – Mr. Kuo-Ming Wang wished to share the experience of smart manufacturing of enterprises in Taiwan to Vietnam. In addition, he hoped to cooperate with Vietnam Standards and Quality Institute and could understand the production needs of Vietnamese enterprises to exchange experience on manufacturing because Vietnam and Taiwan are both APO members.
