My Vision for AmCham
I have been working in Vietnam for close to 10 years and have worked with various stakeholders in Vietnam up to the Ministry level. I hope to use my experience working in this country, my relationship and network to proactively shape business policies – especially healthcare ones. My proven leadership and collaborative working style would contribute to AmCham Board of Directors’ charting new course for AmCham and take this advocating body to the next level.
