[3/12/2015] The Samsung Vietnam Mobile Research and Development Centre (SVMC) in Ha Noi has contributed around 10 per cent of software market share used in Samsung’s smart phones and tablets globally.
The SVMC has implemented about 360 projects of which 40 are globally used solutions while the remaining commercialised software projects belonged to the centre.
Do Duc Dung, head of the SVMC’s project management office told media that SVMC is the largest Research and Development (R&D) centre in the Southeast Asian region. Samsung has 25 R&D centres specialising in research for its phones worldwide.
Established in February 2012, the centre has provided software for Samsung’s smart phones and LTE network suppliers in the Southeast Asian region, Australia and New Zealand.
The SVMC has over 1,500 employees who include just five foreign nationals. It can be seen that Samsung has striven to transfer technologies to Viet Nam as per its commitment. Samsung planned to increase the number of staff at the centre to 2,600 by the year of 2018, Dung said.
“Ninety per cent of engineers at the SVMC attain Samsung’s standards worldwide. Engineers in Viet Nam and India are given the highest valuation from the parent company,” Huh Chang Wan, the centre’s Vice President said.
