Vision for AmCham
Jeff believes AmCham Vietnam’s mission is to support the business growth objectives of U.S. corporations in Vietnam by removing constraints on trade and investment activities and positioning the U.S. business community as a trusted partner and enabler of Vietnam’s sustainable economic development. To realize this mission, AmCham will continue to expand its membership base, cultivate and boost strategic relationships with government stakeholders, leverage on the US-Vietnam relationship and promote AmCham’s corporate social responsibility initiatives.
Jeff’s energetic business leadership and UPS’s strong connectivity to trade and investments interests in Vietnam, the US and the Asia-Pacific region would help drive AmCham’s Vietnam sustained excellence.
