Vietnamese dairy group Vinamilk may become the first local company to list overseas.

Nguyen Ngoc Canh, head of the international department of Vietnam's State Securities Commission (SSC), has revealed that a number of local companies want to list abroad.

Local reports have claimed that the SSC is considering a listing for Vinamilk on the Singapore Exchange (SGX).

Vinamilk is already listed on Vietnam's HCM City Stock Exchange.
