Tech Mahindra is bringing jobs and IT expertise across the region by opening its Vietnam sales office in Hanoi.
Tech Mahindra is present in Vietnam since 2012 and has experienced an increase in the number of customers especially in the banking sector in the country.
It has come a long way since 2012 and today it boasts a strong ecosystem in Vietnam comprising established product vendors and local partners.
The company is now focusing on retail, manufacturing, oil and gas and the telecom sector in the country.
"Vietnam is a key part of our regional strategy and is the sixth country in ASEAN where Tech Mahindra now has physical presence," said Rohit Gandhi, head - Asia Pacific, India, Middle East & Africa, Tech Mahindra (Enterprise). "The Sales Office in Hanoi is another step in being closer to our customers. We plan to work with local universities and increase our headcount to 100 in next 2-3 years."
Strategic partner in India
Vietnam is Tech Mahindra's important strategic partner in India's 'Act East' policy and thus the company prioritises forming closer economic relations with the nation.
"I congratulate Tech Mahindra Limited for opening their new office in Vietnam," said Preeti Saran, Indian Ambassador to Vietnam.
Opening of this office is expected to provide both India and Vietnam greater economic opportunities to work jointly and build a good knowledge base.
Looking forward, this knowledge base can be used to develop IT skills in Vietnam.
"It will also contribute to forging closer economic relations between India and Vietnam. I wish Tech Mahindra all success on this occasion," added Saran.
