In the field of IT services, the city expects to attract investment in consulting and design services, system administration, ICT human resource leasing, data processing and analysis, electronic business process outsourcing, information security monitoring and information security assessment.
For hardware products and services, it should be relevant to the technology of designing and manufacturing integrated circuits, design and manufacture of telecommunications technology equipment, and design, assembly and manufacture of audio-visual equipment.
The first phase of DITP was inaugurated in Da Nang City in March this year. It is the country’s largest centralised information technology centre, being built as the country's ‘Silicon Valley’ with total investment of US$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.
