MANILA -- EMS provider Integrated Microelectronics Inc. has plans to set up operations in Vietnam, a top executive said in an interview.

"It is always an open opportunity. Hopefully, this year," IMI senior managing director for manufacturing and custom business operations Emmanuel Barcelon reportedly said.


Barcelon said Vietnam still needs to improve its English language fluency and government responsiveness.

In the Philippines, IMI is subcontracting assembly services to EMS Components Assembly Inc.

"We are looking to replicate this 'captive' model in China and Vietnam," Barcelon said, according to the report.

The company has operations in the Philippines, the US, China and Singapore.
