HA NOI (Biz Hub) – The military-run Viettel Group is attending the 2016 Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain, from February 22 to 25.

Viettel said MWC 2016 would bring together 85,000 telecommunications and information technology companies from across the world. This is the largest annual event of the global mobile industry, which is attended by leading enterprises in telecom, information technology and related industries.

Being held under the theme "Mobile in Emerging Countries," the event will allow Viettel to share its experiences in telecommunications and information technology.

Tao Duc Thang, deputy general director of the Viettel Group, said it would bring information and communications technologies into every aspect of life.

"We have already implemented the strategy in the fastest, deepest and widest manner possible in Viet Nam and other nations where Viettel has invested, because we clearly understand that this is an opportunity for the developing nations of the world to catch up with the developed countries. Telecommunications and information technology will change the way we live, study, work, entertain and make life smarter, and promote the rapid development of society," Thang said.

Viettel will introduce IT products based on telecom foundations such as e-government solution, e-school (SMAS), sales management solution for distribution chains, and family electronic 1-phase electricity power meter (SMMS.One), as well as e-office, customer services and billing systems at the event.

At the end of 2015, Viettel was operating in 10 countries in Asia, Africa and America, and had 85 million subscribers, besides earning VND238 trillion in revenue and achieving a growth rate of 20.8 per cent.

Viettel began operations in Burundi and Tanzania in 2015, and set significant records. In Burundi, Viettel's Lumitel brand has become the top brand, up from fourth place in just three months. In Tanzania, Viettel's Halotel signed up one million subscribers, also in three months.

The 2015 MWC attracted companies from 200 nations (60 per cent of them from Europe, 18 per cent from America and 15 per cent from Asia), and had 2,000 booths and 3,800 correspondents. — VNS
