The French 3D design software firm Dassault Systèmes has partnered with CASC (China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation) to support efforts by France and China to strengthen their technological and economic cooperation.
CASC will utilise the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to support its digital transformation and accelerate efficiency in China’s industries. It will explore cooperation in information technology, digitalisation software and consulting services.
Dassault Systèmes recently became a founding member of the new France-China Business Council, a group of 30 companies spanning industries such as aerospace, construction, food and health. The council’s aim is to create relationships between French and Chinese companies and to advise both governments on digitalisation.
“France and China are major stakeholders in a new world where an industrial renaissance is emerging,” said Sylvain Laurent, an executive vice president at Dassault Systèmes. “Dassault Systèmes’ partnership with CASC, signed in the presence of the presidents of France and of China, as well as our participation in the France-China Business Council, will help drive cooperation between the two countries for industrial and societal transformation. After all, these milestones are rooted in a common commitment to nurture innovation for a more sustainable future.”
