Hanh, a permanent member of the Sabeco's Management Board, will hold the post on a temporary basis.

Hanh, 56, replaces Phan Dang Tuat who took the post from 2008. The ministry had signed a decision, terminating Tuat's appointment as a representative of State-owned capital at Sabeco. Tuat will be assigned to another job by the ministry.

Sabeco has a charter capital of VND6.4 trillion (US$284.95 million), more than 89 per cent of which is owned by the state. The ministry plans to sell the state-owned shares in Sabeco to bring down the state's stake to 36 per cent.

In its previous plan, Sabeco planned a total net profit of almost VND3.11 trillion ($138.47 million) for the whole year, up just 2 per cent over last year's result, and the pidend was projected at 25 per cent.

The target of total sales was expected to be VND31.721 trillion ($1.41 billion), equivalent to 1.425 billion litres of beers, up 2 per cent over 2014, of which Saigon Beer will account for 1.388 billion litres./.
