Intel Cuts Ribbon on Billion-Dollar Plant in Vietnam

In Ho Chi Minh City today, Intel officially opened what CEO Paul Otellini called “the largest and most sophisticated assembly test facility in Intel’s global manufacturing network.” The $1 billion plant began cranking up in June, making chipsets for mobile devices. Just Tuesday, Otellini presided over the opening of another big Asian investment–a $2.5 billion semiconductor manufacturing plant in Dalian, China. In a pre-emptive defense against criticism for exporting jobs, the chip giant said last week it planned to invest between $6 billion and $8 billion on future generations of manufacturing technology in its U.S. facilities.

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest. These posts are explicitly labeled, so it’s clear that the content comes from other websites, and for clarity’s sake, all outside posts run against a pink background.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
