Chúc Mừng Năm Mới! On behalf of Winnie Wong, Chair of AmCham Vietnam here in Ho Chi Minh City, we are delighted to extend a special invitation. We are starting the Year of the Tiger with a Chair’s Circle invite-only luncheon in honor of Vice Foreign Minister Nguyễn Quốc Dũng, soon to be posted in Washington, DC as the new Vietnamese Ambassador to the United States.

The luncheon will be a valuable opportunity for us to exchange views on trade and investment priorities and build a relationship with Vice Foreign Minister Dũng before he departs for Washington.

Please plan to arrive no later than 11:45 AM to ensure we can start on time.
