General director of AEON Vietnam Furusawa Yasuyuki said: “This is the first time AEON Vietnam has launched the SSM model in the south. We chose Binh Duong New City after finding out the development potential of economic and population of this area in the near future. AEON Vietnam decided to invest at this time, following a long-term vision of 5-10 years while continuing to search for suitable locations in other provinces and cities for business expansion.”
With the SSM model, AEON Vietnam aims to both meet the "near and convenient” requirements of a large urban population, providing AEON standard products, services and shopping experience, thereby helping customers enjoy their daily life.
