VNPT’s target till 2020 is an average revenue growth rate of 6.5 per cent a year and an average profit growth of 10.8 per cent a year.
The target during the 2021-25 period is an average revenue growth rate of 7.7 per cent a year and an average profit growth rate of 11 per cent a year.
Under the restructuring plan, VNPT’s key businesses will include products and services of telecommunications, information technology, multimedia and other digital services, consultancy, design, installation, exploitation, maintenance, repair and lease of telecommunication and information technology constructions and equipment.
Hải requested VNPT to refer to the experience of successfully equitised enterprises in Việt Nam and other countries in order to maximise the State capital assets and ensure transparency and lawfulness during the equitisation process.
