AmCham Vietnam would like to invite you to a farewell dinner for U.S. Consul General Marie Damour on Thursday, July 7th, at the InterContinental Saigon. The dinner will begin at 7PM, with a cocktail reception before, starting at 6PM.
Consul General Damour has been a close friend and partner of the American business community during her three years as Consul General in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. She has worked tirelessly to strengthen U.S.-Vietnam trade and investment ties, and the bilateral comprehensive partnership.
On May 25th, President Joe Biden announced his intent to nominate U.S. Consul General in HCMC Marie C. Damour as Nominee for Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to the Republic of Fiji, the Republic of Kiribati, the Republic of Nauru, the Kingdom of Tonga, and Tuvalu. We will be sorry to see CG Damour depart in July, but congratulate her on this fantastic and well-deserved news!
Please join us for this special event to express our gratitude for all of Consul General Damour’s contributions here in Vietnam generally and in Ho Chi Minh City particularly, and to wish her well in her new role. Sponsorship opportunities are available.
