Vision for AmCham
It would be an honor for me to be elected to the board of Governors. I would look to work with the Governors and members of AmCham Hanoi to firstly enhance the overall profile and reputation of this organization. Secondly, I would want to specifically work to promote trade and to develop a transparent investment environment in Vietnam. Leveraging my international and cross-cultural experience, I believe I can add value to very specific business issues that would help support growth of the Vietnamese economy. I would look to enhance the advocacy agenda and help achieve the main objective of promoting trade and investment between Vietnam and the U.S. AmCham Hanoi has made a positive impact on Vietnamese society over so many years. Let’s build on that legacy!
