Based on this MoU, both companies will seek cooperation around the fields of logistics, digital finance, retail, solutions for smart city, loyalty programs etc. Samsung SDS will collaborate with Sovico Group’s subsidiaries in the logistics business to jointly seek new business opportunities.

Especially, Samsung SDS’ know-hows and technological platforms will not only enhance significantly Sovico Group’s existing digital services but also bring greater benefits for two companies’ customers, and enable two sides to develop joint business opportunities.

Dr. Nguyen Thanh Hung, Chairman of Sovico Group, said, "We believe that the cooperation with Samsung SDS will contribute to a significant growth for the two companies and soon offer more products and services to the market community."

Dr. WP Hong, President and CEO of Samsung SDS, said, "Samsung SDS is dedicated to support Sovico Group's digital innovation and we believe this partnership will help us to further expand our presence in Vietnam."

Meanwhile, under the management policy of 'Innovative growth based on external business', Samsung SDS is consistently expanding its business in the Southeast Asian market, following its strategic investment in Vietnamese IT service company, CMC, in July this year.
