This year, the group will continue to replicate the mini-mall model, integrating pharmaceuticals, personal financial products, entertainment services, and telecommunications into shopping services of supermarkets and mini WinMart+.

 

The group expects its consolidated net revenue to reach between VND90 trillion and VND110 trillion ($3.97 billion and $4.8 billion) in 2022.
