Expressing his honour to be the Vietnamese Ambassador to Peru, Nghị affirmed he will do his utmost to continue developing the bilateral ties between the two countries. On February 7, the diplomat met with representatives of Bitel – one of the largest telecom operators in Peru, which is also a subsidiary of Việt Nam's military-run telecom giant Viettel. After 10 years of operating in Peru, Bitel has accounted for 19 per cent of the market share in the South American country. Besides providing telecommunications services, Bitel has also diversified products such as providing e-wallet services (Bipay), free OTT TV (TV360), electronic lottery (Tusami), and customer retention, especially in remote areas where travel is difficult. Bitel is committed to providing free internet services to more than 4,000 schools in Peru and universalising telecommunications services.
