Vietnam is the fasting growing insurance market in the world and has one of the fastest growing ultra-high net worth (UHNW) population . We have the ambitious vision to make Vietnam into a market with new and unique health cover options which go ‘broader and deeper’ into the local health care market,bringing high quality and affordable healthcare to many more Vietnamese.
How I Can Be Of Value to AmCham Board of Governors:
Currently I am a core member of Amcham Healthcare Committee with intention of improving the efficiency of the health care sector and facilitating policy changes in Vietnam that would enable us to provide better care for patients, improve the business environment and strengthen society as a whole. We believe that financial investment and development through the international private health care companies, encouraged and directed by Amcham,is the best way to achieve this goal.
Being elected to the Board of Governors would allow me to work to expand and deepen the healthcare and financial services sectors, in particular, but it would also allow me to help enable AmCham members and US businesses to grow and achieve success in Vietnam overall. My experience as a bridge person, a Vietnamese national who serves as a US multinational executive, would be of use to many American business interests seeking to navigate Vietnam. As a Board member, I would work actively to cultivate strong US-Vietnam trade and investment relations, as well as maintain an emphasis on the corporate social responsibilities of foreign businesses investing and operating in Vietnam.
