Having already invested $250 million in Vietnam, Nvidia is scheduled to discuss semiconductor cooperation deals with Vietnamese tech companies and authorities in an upcoming meeting on Monday, as reported by Reuters on Friday.

Vietnam, home to major chip assembling factories, including Intel’s largest globally, aims to venture into chip designing and potentially chip-making amid trade tensions between the United States and China, creating opportunities for Vietnam in the industry.

The chipmaker has previously collaborated with Vietnam’s leading tech companies to implement AI in cloud computing, automotive, and healthcare industries.
