A new VEON is emerging, a leaner Company with a sharper focus on emerging market growth and digital opportunities. The strategic opportunities this transformation offers is now a focus for the Board as we reposition the Group for long-term growth.
Group Chief Executive Officer
In three years, our digital operator strategy has come full circle. It has unified our three business pillars of infrastructure, our telecom operations and digital assets into a single, coherent whole and offers an unrivalled customer experience in each of the six markets we serve.
Group Chief Financial Officer
VEON entered 2022 with high ambitions. The success of our digital operator model opened up a wealth of revenue opportunities in all markets for the Group throughout 2022 and galvanised growth in our 4G customer base.
By sharing our infrastructure with others, we boost investments in 4G networks. This generates revenues, thereby creating ﬁnancial capital as well as reducing energy use, which lowers our negative impact on natural capital.
We take our responsibility by fostering digital entrepreneurship, skills and literacy in our local communities. This positively aﬀects our digital/ technological and social and relationship capitals.
We create digital assets that complement our businesses and contribute to our ambitions as a digital operator. In the emerging markets VEON operates in, ventures in ﬁntech or entertainment are high potential assets that enhance our customer, technology and digital capital.
We believe that communications is a basic social need, connecting people and communities with resources essential for growth, well-being and development.Read more Read more
