Supply industry needs to tap the global chain

Technological and financial limitations are major development constraints for the local supply industry, Bui Quang Chuyen, Chairman of the Viet Nam Engine and Agricultural Machinery Corporation (VEAM), tells VietnamPlus.

Where does the Vietnamese supply industry stand now?

The supply industry has progressed, but not yet caught up with the country’s development demands. This is partically due to limited technological standards and difficulties in finances.

In addition, many localities do not have policies to encourage businesses to invest in the supply industry. There is no support for investment in technology, in technology transfer, or preferential tax policies, especially for agricultural machinery. For instance, there is no import tax refund on materials and fuels used to make agricultural machinery and other supply industry items.

To join in the global supply chain, particularly in the automobile industry, hi-tech production knowledge is required so that we are competitive in terms of product quality, price, packaging and delivery. There are many other factors as well.

VEAM currently has three companies in the supply industry; Machinery Spare parts No.1, Pho Yen Mechanical JSC and Song Cong Diesel Company. About 70 per cent of the companies’ output is supplied to Japanese motorbike makers.

We know that the businesses will have to invest in high-tech machinery, with accuracy and capacity of foremost importance.

To acquire and use advanced technologies, VEAM has to send its staff and workers to training courses in foreign countries and hire experts to directly train workers here.

Were there foreign businesses specialising in agricultural machinery that bought VEAM shares during its recent initial public offering…
