A fast-growing presence in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines and now Vietnam, is indicative of the importance of the ASEAN region to Tata Motors’ international business strategy. In particular, increased market consumption coupled with newer customer demands continues to make Vietnam, an attractive market. “Since 2007, Vietnam has witnessed exceptional growth, both in terms of internal demand as well as exports. Consumer demands are diverse and on the rise, making it the right time for Tata Motors to look at this country,” says Rudrarup Maitra (Head - International Business, Commercial Vehicles).
In specific geographies like Vietnam, local partnerships are fundamental to the success of global manufacturers like Tata Motors. While we bring our design-technology-product expertise to the table, we seek local partners, who have an innate understanding of the domestic market. That’s what makes a winning business combination.
