HANOI, Vietnam--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #FR0014003TT8, DSY.PA) today officially cut the ribbon on its new Vietnam office, formalizing its relationship and reinforcing its commitment to one of the fastest growing markets in Southeast Asia. The new office is based in Hanoi’s Ba Dinh District, the nation’s political center, alongside government offices and embassies.
With Vietnam targeting to achieve carbon emission neutrality by 2050, the French software developer – best known for its 3DEXPERIENCE platform – brings a firm sustainability commitment in line with its official market entry.
Samson Khaou, Executive Vice President, Asia Pacific, Dassault Systèmes said: “Sustainability is at the heart of Dassault Systèmes’ Corporate Purpose. It is completely aligned with Vietnam’s commitment to achieving net zero emissions by 2050 at the COP26 summit (2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference). The local presence that we are establishing here is an opportunity to support the country’s efforts to be a green manufacturing hub and facilitate the export of made-in-Vietnam products.”
“We have a long established track record in Vietnam,” said Josephine Ong, Managing Director for Asia Pacific South, Dassault Systèmes. “This has seen us collaborate closely with some of the most prestigious universities nationwide, and develop a solid network of partners and resellers. We also have a growing base of customers across Vietnam’s key growth sectors looking to deploy our 3DEXPERIENCE platform.”
Through Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform, global leaders and innovators across 11 industries have been empowered to improve their product development, quality management and regulatory compliance. By connecting people, ideas and data in a single collaborative platform, customers are able to virtually design, simulate and test innovative products and services before they are produced and launched in the real world.
“In Vietnam, we are working with the country’s largest private conglomerate, Vingroup, to support their digital transformation, namely for their VinFast and Vinhomes businesses,” Ong added. “We are active in the EV (electric vehicles) space globally and see this as a sector in which our 3DEXPERIENCE platform is ideally suited to optimize manufacturing processes and help propel the industry forward in Vietnam.”
The company also has its sights set on Vietnam’s emerging smart-city developments, with Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Danang announcing the deployment of smart technologies in sectors ranging from traffic management to health and education in the coming decade.
“The Covid-19 pandemic serves as a clear demonstration of the need for public services to break silos, and act swiftly and decisively during times of crisis. By leveraging our collaborative 3DEXPERIENCE platform with virtual twin technologies, decision makers will be better equipped to plan for unforeseen crises, as well as the impact of new urban projects here in Vietnam,” said Ong.
