In general the renovation of technology and equipments by small and medium enterprises in Viet Nam is just purchasing new machinery, equipments and learn to know necessary operations to operate them. Most of enterprises have no specialized study thus to master, improve and develop technology … The renovation of technology in companies are passively made, under market’s pressure. Manufacturers only look for modern technology when customers make orders, which need to use such one. General estimation Activity of equipments and technological renovation meets with many difficulties and unfavorable conditions such as: enterprises’ awareness of challenges in integration is insufficient, the knowledge of the managers and workers in the companies are low ; shortage of capital for technological renovation; the contents of state-administration of technology are not clear, management is overlapping and short of system method... This is the problem that the government is finding solutions to overcome, thus to promote and make the enterprises’ renovation of technology to become better.
