"This partnership fulfills our mission to be a preferred partner by multinational corporations and certainly helps extend our reach to a new group of quality customers in the region. Vietnam has been experiencing rapid economic growth and through extending our reach to this significant emerging market, CPCNet and VDC can join hands to provide a seamless MPLS VPN network and deliver converged IP services to enterprises with end-to-end Quality of Service across Vietnam and the Greater China," said Joel Ma, executive vice president of CPCNet, a wholly owned subsidiary of CITIC 1616 Holdings Limited.
