Born in 1970, Long got his PhD in telecommunications in Japan. He started working for VNPT in 1992 and has held various positions at VNPT such as the head of the telecoms department and director of HCM City Telecom.

He was appointed VNPT’s Deputy General Director in 2013 and joined its member council later.

VNPT is currently the fixed broadband service provider with the largest market share in the country and the second-largest mobile market share. It has provided information technology solutions, e-government, smart cities for the Government, ministries and most provinces and cities across the country.

Speaking at the ceremony, Nguyen Hoang Anh, chairman of the Commission for the Management of State Capital at Enterprises (CMSC), said Long was expected to lead VNPT to the completion of all tasks in terms of finance, administration, privatisation and launching the 5G network in the upcoming years.
