Earlier in late September 2017, the State Securities Commission (SSC) approved the plan to lift the foreign ownership limit in BMP to 100 per cent. At the time, analysts believed that Nawaplastic will be a candidate in the race for a controlling stake in BMP.

Nawaplastic announced that it will divest from another large-scale plastic manufacturer, Tien Phong Plastic JSC, to collect capital to acquire more BMP shares. However, to date, no more information about these deals were published.
