Jewellery News Asia (JNA) Awards recently selected Phu Nhuan Jewellery JSC (PNJ) among their finalists for three major categories honouring excellent businesses, according to the Sai Gon Giai phong newspaper.
The Vietnamese firm has high hopes of winning Employer of the Year, Outstanding Enterprise of the Year – ASEAN Countries, and Retailer of the Year, the newspaper said, quoting sources from the company.
Within the first half of 2015, PNJ posted more than 3.85 trillion VND (177.4 million USD) in revenue, a 6 percent annual climb, with pre-tax profits estimated at 228 billion VND (10.5 million USD). Gold jewellery retail made up 75 percent of the total value earned.
The company has opened 17 gold stores nationwide so far this year and plans to establish another four in July.
