At a meeting with VNPT in Hanoi on Thursday, the Prime Minister praised the group’s success saying that it’s of great importance to Vietnam’s integration process. He urged the group to focus on high-tech industrial production, limit imports, and promote unity and Party building. Mr. Phuc said: “VNPT needs to take the lead in the Vietnamese telecommunications market and improve its infrastructure. It’s not easy for VNPT to become a leading group amidst current competition. VNPT needs to focus on developing mobile telecommunications and promote the trade mark of Vinaphone regionally and globally. It’s necessary to strengthen the supply of IT products and services, participate in the development of an e-government hosted by the Government Office, promote e-papers and e-services in health care, education, and transport”.

The Prime Minister requested that VNPT improve the quality of and expand the broadband of the Party and State, and ensure cyber security. He asked the group to reform its management and organizational structure.

The PM also attended the inauguration of the Vinaphone-S service,  a new mobile satellite service in Vietnam which will help to expand mobile network coverage across Vietnam’s territory and waters.
