Intel will build a chipset facility in Vietnam, The Inquirer reported.

The investment would cost Intel $605 million. It's said the plant will be built on 115 acres of land in a high-tech park in Ho Chi Minh City, offering a job to 2,000 people.
The Vietnamese government is not saying much on the matter, other than the fact it has received Intel’s paperwork. Intel is not saying anything either.

Vietnam’s Ministry of Planning and Investment's Foreign Investment Department said the project of this size needed the consideration of several government ministries and the prime minister will have the final decision. A license could be issued within 45 days.
