Dear Members and Friends,

Let us welcome Michael Roberts, new Executive Director of AusCham in Vietnam. He would like to extend his greetings to all of you:

Hi, my name is Michael Roberts and I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the new Executive Director of Auscham. I’ve been living in Vietnam for almost two years now, based in Da Nang and working in the education sector.  My wife and I relocated here because we love the country and the people, but since our arrival I have been overwhelmed by a number of things, not the least of which is the level of opportunity that exists to do business here.  It’s because of that opportunity that I decided to apply, and was extremely happy to accept the position when it was offered.

I have many years’ experience in Australia working predominantly in tourism, but within that sector I have been involved in a number of interesting pursuits including small business, education and training, and political lobbying on behalf of the industry.

I hope I can use the skills and experience I have gained over these years to assist Auscham and its members in an effective manner to grow and become more successful.

In the first few weeks of my appointment I will be out and about meeting as many of our members as possible, but if you need to contact me please do not hesitate.

  • AusCham’s Sundowners networking event will be on 7 June in Hanoi and HCMC.
  • AusCham’s Breakfast Business Briefing on “Working in Vietnam: Overview of current employment laws, work permits and taxation” will be held on 26 June in Hanoi and 28 June in HCMC.
  • Thank you to the following new and renewing members: Aardwolf Industries LLC, Jun Min Lee, Industry Travel Asia, Knock Education Consulting Services, Wilderness Foundation Africa.
