Country Manager, UL VS Vietnam LTD.
Born in Vietnam and came of age in the US, Tuoc joined the AmeriCorps program that trains young leaders by helping to conduct economic revitalization for communities in underdeveloped areas. He returned to Vietnam in the late 1990s where he became an integral part of several key industries and their initial development in Vietnam like Mercedes-Benz’s automobile factory development, and Phu My Hung real estate development. And most recently he was the first person to lay the foundation for both Google and Facebook’s meteoric growth and development which saw Vietnam as the top digital destination in the region.

Statement of Interest/Vision
As co-chair of the Digital Economy & Technology Committee, I have seen firsthand how AmCham membership benefits from our work. With our training on “Economic recovery, post-pandemic” we were able to engage the government, community, and businesses. In addition, our meeting with a Vietnamese government official drafting new regulations allowed AmCham members to ask questions and provide valuable feedback.
As a member of the AmCham Vietnam National Board of Governors, I will use my cross-cultural skills and influence to amplify the connectivity and engagement of our members in the following three layers:
- Government: I will ensure that our members’ needs are received and followed by specific action items.
- Community: I will build relationships with academia and non-governmental organizations to collaborate on mutually beneficial initiatives.
- Local businesses: I will leverage the first two layers to drive opportunities for AmCham members through access, business matching, awareness, or training.
I am confident that my skills and experience will make me a valuable asset to the AmCham Vietnam National Board of Governors. I am committed to working with other board members to advance the interests of our members and promote the American Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam.
