The event also marked the award's 15th anniversary. This year's award recorded changes in selecting and ranking businesses regarding their scales, efficiency, and responsibility.

Deputy Prime Minister Vuong Dinh Hue congratulated awarded businesses, acknowledging their significant contributions to national achievements in 2018. 2018 saw a record number of 13,000 new businesses.
