Welcome to Philip Morris International (PMI) in Vietnam.
PMI is a leading international tobacco company, with a diverse workforce of around 77,000 people and products present in more than 180 markets. We are building a future on a new category of smoke-free products that, while not risk-free, are a much better choice than continuing to smoke.
PMI was in the first wave of American companies to enter Vietnam during the 1990s. Today, Marlboro – the world’s best-selling international cigarette brand – is manufactured and sold by the joint venture Vinataba-Philip Morris Limited. We currently employ approximately 350 employees, of which approximately 100 work at Vinataba – Philip Morris Ho Chi Minh City Branch.
In 2016, PMI announced the decision to build its future on smoke-free products that are a much better choice than cigarettes. As of June 30, 2019, our heat-not-burn product is available for sale in 48 markets. Every market plays a part in delivering on this global vision, and Vietnam is one of our prioritized markets to introduce smoke-free products in Asia. We believe that our company can contribute best to public health by developing a broad range of reduced-risk, and therefore better, alternatives to cigarettes that smokers can switch to.
