Visitors were greeted by Sabee Mitra, President of Emerson Process Management Asia Pacific, and Dominic Tang, General Manager, Southeast Asia and Taiwan. They heard an update on Emerson's innovative technologies and solutions by Hakan Erdamar, Vice President of Marketing & Services, Emerson Process Management Asia Pacific, and toured the new facilities in which Emerson's latest automation products were demonstrated.
"Vietnam represents a strong emerging market for Emerson technologies and services," Sabee said, "and we are investing here now to provide a base for meeting the needs of local industry with engineering and service support. In the future, Emerson expects to participate in major offshore oil and gas, refining, and power generation projects in Vietnam, offering its complete portfolio of automation products and services in conjunction with our local business partners."

Emerson is the first to introduce FOUNDATION fieldbus technology in Vietnam, and this advanced technology has now been installed in four plants.
