SINGAPORE – 7 May, 2012 – The Association of Vietnamese Professionals in Singapore Vietnam2020 organizes the first career networking event for Vietnamese companies in Singapore named “Gathering Talents, Connecting Business” on 23, June, 2012 at the Shaw Foundation Alumni House, Singapore. The event provides a platform for companies in Vietnam to recruit experienced Vietnamese professionals in Singapore as well as network with Singapore-based companies for future partnership opportunities.
“Gathering Talents, Connecting Business” is initiated by the Enterprise Family, a sub-group of Vietnam2020 that comprises of active members sharing the goal to enhance the business relationship between Vietnam and Singapore. The Enterprise Family strategically partners with the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Ho Chi Minh City branch (VCCI-HCM) and the Singapore Business Group (SBG) to approach companies and business associations in Vietnam. The event comprises of Career Fair, Workshops on talents engagement and management, panel discussion on strategic business partnership between Vietnam and Singapore and Networking session with members of the Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce & Industry and other Singapore-based companies.
The “Gathering Talents, Connecting Business” event is highly complimented by Mr. Vo Ta Han, the founder of Vietnam2020. “In recent years, Vietnam just passed the early stages of its global economic integration and is ready to kick off. Regarding the economic aspect, human resources play an important role for companies in Vietnam. Meanwhile, Singapore has been considered as the ideal place to nurture Vietnamese talents. Among many Vietnamese communities all over the world, the Vietnamese community in Singapore comprises the most highly educated people. Also, this community is young and geographically close to Vietnam. I believe the event provides an excellent opportunity for both sides to meet and understand more about each other,” said Mr. Vo Ta Han.
Dr. Dau Van Huan, Project Director of the event, said: “The past 10 years witnessed a regular increase in the number of Vietnamese students studying in Singapore. Statistics show that there has been around 8,000 Vietnamese students graduating from Singapore universities and most of them are staying working in MNCs in Singapore. Based on the survey conducted by the Enterprise Family, many Vietnamese professional in Singapore plan to go back and work in Vietnam in the future. At the same time, the demand to attract international experienced professionals among companies in Vietnam is increasing. This motivates the Enterprise Family to organise this event for both sides to meet and discuss directly, creating more opportunities to strengthen business in Vietnam.”
