"The accession of VinCommerce and VinEco not only resonates and adds value to Masan's core competencies, but also helps us quickly achieve our goal of becoming the leading domestic Consumer and Retail Group, heading towards the international market” - Mr. Truong Cong Thang, Chairman of Masan Consumer Corporation, spoke about the cooperation between the retailer and the largest consumer goods manufacturing company in Vietnam.
