"It’s a test. If we could win over the most difficult market, we could easily enter others. We need to set high goals for our startups," said Pham Nhat Vuong, chairman of the largest listed company in Vietnam, at a shareholder meeting Thursday.

He was referring to automaker VinFast and smartphone producer VinSmart, both subsidiaries identified as the company’s new core businesses.

VinFast on Thursday tested its first electric car model in Hanoi in preparation for Los Angeles Auto Show in November. Although the company does not release sales figures, official data shows 5,124 VinFast cars were registered in the first quarter, helping the auto brand rank fifth in Vietnam sales.

VinSmart has sold 1.2 million smartphones in 17 months to claim third place in Vietnam market share behind South Korea’s Samsung and China’s Oppo.

However, losses are expected for both companies in three to five years, Vuong warned. "For the next several years our target is not to profit but to dominate the market."

Vingroup, with a market cap of over $14 billion, has not been immune to coronavirus impacts. The board has announced that it would strictly manage spending and investment this year to reduce costs and focus on developing its existing businesses.

The company aims to hit a revenue of VND145 trillion ($6.2 billion) this year, up 12 percent over 2019, and a post-tax profit of VND5 trillion ($214 million), down 35 percent.
