Viettel was named in ten categories at the International Business Awards 2019 (IBA Stevie Awards).

CEO of Viettel Post, Mr. Tran Trung Hung, was Gold Winner in the “Executive of the Year - Transportation” category.

“Shake The Amazing” - a digital marketing campaign on smartphones by Viettel Myanmar (Mytel) - was a Gold Winner in the category of “Mobile Marketing Campaign of the Year”. Generating up to 6 million “shakes” per day, the campaign helped Mytel reach 2 million mobile subscribers just a month after launch.

The Burundi subsidiary of Viettel, Lumitel, won Gold as the “Fastest Growing Company of the Year - Middle East and Africa” while Viettel Peru (Bitel) won Bronze in the “Best New Product or Service of the Year - Telecommunications - Product” category for the mobile prepaid package Ti5.

ViettelPay - a digital payment application of Viettel Digital Services Corporation - won an award in the category of “Best New Product or Service of the Year - Financial Services”. It is the only digital payment application in Vietnam that can be used without the internet.

“With the mission of pioneering digital transformation to create a digital society, Viettel is conducting comprehensive digital transformation for a wide range of operational and business activities both internally and also services to customers in eleven countries around the world where it has a presence,” said Mr. Le Dang Dung, General Director of the Viettel Group.

Viettel’s efforts have brought initial results, and international recognition at the 2019 IBA Stevie Awards 2019 as an example. “However, we still have a lot of work to do to create a digital transformation boom like we have done with telecommunications,” Mr. Dung said.
