2018 also marked the second consecutive year that Petrolimex/PLX was honoured by Forbes Việt Nam among “Vietnam’s 50 best listed companies” and “40 most valuable brands” as a milestone for the labour and innovation efforts of the whole Petrolimex staff to achieve positive results; notably in: ensuring absolute security and safety; completing the restructuring in accordance with Decision 828 and officially operating under the management of the Committee for State Capital Management (CMSC) as October 1, 2018; officially trading E5 RON 92 bio-fuel and DO-V diesel throughout the whole system; expanding the system of petrol stations beyond expectations; strengthening management capacity to meet the standards of a large scale public company.

In 2019, the national economy continues to integrate deeply with regional and international economic commitments. In line with the Govenrment’s general objectives on macroeconomics under the context of unfavourable developments of the domestic petroleum business, the Annual General Meeting of Petrolimex Shareholders agreed to: Maintain the stability and sustainable development, improve business efficiency through enhanced governance quality; and mantain the expected minimum dividend of 2019 at 12%.

Tasks and solutions concretising the 2019 orientations, which basically have been implemented by Petrolimex Board of Management, Board of Directors and the whole staff since early 2019, were also approved by the Annual General Meeting.

Addressing the event, CMSC Chairman Nguyen Hoang Anh highly spoke of achievements that Petrolimex made in 2018, and agreed with the orientations and business targets set for 2019; emphasising the four key points on (1) risk analysis and assessment, (2) restructuring and divestment, (3) improved governance and technological application in supervision and management and (4) promoting the market-leading strength and effective logistics to increase shareholders’ benefits.

On behalf of the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT), Deupty Minister Do Thang Hai congratulated Petrolimex on its production and business successes for the fourth consecutive year, and shareholders on their effective investment in PLX. The Duputy Minister stressed that Petrolimex should maintain, and bring into full play advantages in material facilities, human resources and great brand value to work with the MoIT to fulfill the macroeconomic targets set by the Government.

With the unity and consensus of the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders and the thorough instruction from the CMSC and MoIT leadership, Petrolimex leaders, managers and all employees are determined to preserve the stable and effective development, promoting the sense of responsibility, implementing commitments to bring about increasing values to shareholders, partners and customers in 2019.
