4:05pm – 4:35pmGuest speaker: Mr. Le Song Lai, Deputy General Director, Vietnam’s State Capital Investment Corporation (SCIC)
Topic: SCIC’s updates and initiatives around State equitization and the latest divestment opportunities.
Background: The State Capital Investment Corporation (SCIC) is a state-owned holding company considered a national wealth fund of Vietnam, similar to Singapore’s Temasek or GIC. It was established in 2005 as part of a range of reforms aimed at enhancing the efficiency of state capital utilization. In May 2020, SCIC announced its plan of divesting 85 state-owned enterprises (SOEs), notably VNSteel, Vinatex, and Bao Viet Holdings (HSX: BVH), Bao Minh Insurance (HSX: BMI), Tien Phong Plastic (HNX: NTP), Binh Minh Plastics (HSX: BMP), VNSteel, Vietnam Plastics, Hai Phong Thermal Power, and Seaprodex. These are attractive SOEs and would be of interest to many investors despite the volatility of the capital market due to Covid19.More info:
