In pursuit of our vision to be a New Generation Digital Champion by 2021, the Group has transformed itself from a holding entity with a portfolio of pure-play mobile assets into a Triple Core Strategy driven business focus to include Digital Telco, Digital Businesses and Infrastructure. With a broader goal of Advancing Asia, Axiata pieces together the best in the region in terms of innovation, connectivity and talent. As a long-term investor in all our markets, Axiata remains committed to its role as a responsible corporate citizen, to make a difference in people’s lives and help transform the countries in which it operates.
