The Ministry of Transport (MoT) has actively promoted digital transformation to enhance project efficiency and reduce costs.

With advanced technologies and cooperation experience with various governments and enterprises worldwide, Autodesk desires to support and is willing to accompany the Ministry of Transport in applying BIM effectively.

Digital transformation in transportation and logistics is among the eight sectors prioritised by the Government. According to Minister of Transport, Nguyễn Văn Thắng, the ministry recently brought its activities to the digital environment, aiming at data-based management and administration in three primary areas: traffic infrastructure, transportation, and traffic safety.

“The transport ministry is speeding up the digital transformation, which leads to the chance for applying new software and technologies into the activities of transportation area," said Thắng. He also said that the ministry is always willing to welcome foreign investors that own highly applicable technologies to participate in all stages and processes of project implementation to ensure traffic safety for participants and the project life.

Earlier had a meeting with Haresh Khoobchandani, Vice President, Asia Pacific and Japan Sales, Autodesk - a global leader in the design and make platform category. At the meeting, in response to the desire to apply technology in project management of the MoT, Haresh has introduced the application of Building Information Modeling (BIM) - the solution that Autodesk has provided to support various governments around the world for building infrastructure such as the Bangalore International Airport project in India and the tunnel construction project in Norway.

Autodesk BIM will accelerate infrastructure construction and meet the project’s strategic goals, such as capital planning for a flexible transport system, modernising transport infrastructure system through digital project delivery, project cost optimisation, or operational efficiency and productivity.

“It was an honour to be able to discuss with the minister how Autodesk can play a part in Việt Nam’s growth journey, from equipping public servants and students in digital skills to sharing our insights with government agencies on how they can best leverage data and BIM for safer and more efficient infrastructure projects," said Haresh.

Việt Nam is one of Autodesk’s core markets, with many partners using Autodesk solutions to design projects. — VNS
