“We are glad to see our business expanding here. The growth indicates that our customer-centric approach works well and we will continue to work hard to raise the bar in terms of customer service and level of customer satisfaction.”

The new office is located in the city’s downtown, at the Petro Tower, 8 Hoang Dieu Street, Ward 1.

The beach city of Vung Tau is 130 kilometers by road east of Ho Chi Minh City. Its main industries include oil and gas, tourism, aqua-products and fishing. It is a hub of Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province.
