In 2008, Samsung Group officially received an investment license and started the construction of a mobile phone factory (SEV) in Yen Phong Industrial Park, with a total registered capital of US$ 670 million. After 10 years of operations, Samsung is the largest foreign investor in Vietnam with a total investment of more than US$ 17.3 billion, of which SEV (Bac Ninh) and SEVT (Thai Nguyen) are two of Samsung's largest mobile phone plants worldwide. In the development strategy of Samsung, Vietnam plays an important role in manufacturing, researching and developing.

In 2017, Vietnam's export turnover reached over US$ 200 billion for the first time, of which Samsung’s export turnover reached a record of more than US$ 54 billion, contributing more than 25% to the total export turnover of Vietnam.

The success of Samsung in Vietnam is also a success of the reform policies and the continuous improvement of the quality and attractiveness of the investment environment by the Vietnamese Government, he added.
