Hitachi Sunway Information Systems, a joint venture between Japan’s Hitachi Systems and the Malaysia-based Sunway Technology Sdn Bhd, recently met with the National Assembly (NA)’s Economic Committee and the Committee for Science, Technology, and Environment to discuss cooperative programs leveraging Industry 4.0 to benefit Vietnam’s socioeconomic development.

Vietnam has good policies in place for investors and the government encourages technology investments leveraging Industry 4.0 that will help the country continue its economic growth rate, according to Dr. Phan Xuan Dung, Chairman of the Committee for Science, Technology, and Environment.

“Vietnam will continue to look into institutional and structural reforms, improve IT infrastructure, and increase talent quality to attract more foreign investors, as these are key to achieving its vision to 2045, especially as it becomes more integrated into the global economy,” he said.

Hitachi Sunway intends to replicate their success stories in State-owned enterprises (SOEs) and private companies, especially in the area of Industry 4.0, with the objectives of increasing speed to market, improving management of operational complexity, building local talent, and boosting productivity. Ultimately, these are vital drivers for Vietnam’s future success.

“Addressing these complex areas requires strong leadership and clarity of vision from both the public and private sectors,” said Dr. Nguyen Hoang Hiep, Country Manager of Hitachi Systems Vietnam. “It is important for organizations like Hitachi Sunway to create awareness in new areas such as Industry 4.0, manufacturing digitalization, big data, artificial intelligence, and others.”

Vietnam’s requirements fit well with Hitachi Sunway’s expertise, according to the Committee for Science, Technology, and Environment, and the company should work with SOEs and the private sector to leverage new solutions relating to Industry 4.0.

Attending the discussions were members from the Committees and the NA, Group CEO of the Hitachi Sunway Group and Chairman of Hitachi Systems Vietnam Cheah Kok Hoong, IndoChina Managing Director of Hitachi Sunway Tay Cho Hup, Country Manager of Hitachi Systems Vietnam Nguyen Hoang Hiep, and Senior Vice President of Hitachi Sunway Muzahid Shah.

With a vision to become the leading one-stop IT solutions provider in Southeast Asia, Hitachi Sunway is an ICT services integrator specializing in implementing, supporting, and providing consultancy for Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, and managing and supporting IT infrastructure and cloud-enabling IT platforms, including cyber security elements, in fully compliant and secure data centers.
