Dear Members and Friends,

Effective immediately, I will start writing “a message” in our Weekly Newsletter that gives you a quick update on Auscham’s activities. Hopefully that will give you more of a flavour and make you feel more connected to your Chamber.

Last week, in conjunction with RMIT University, we held AusCham’s first ever Roundtable Discussion. 10 of HCMC’s most senior business leaders considered the strategic development of HR in Vietnam over the next five years. At the same time, in Hanoi, more than 50 attendees came to our seminar with Allens who presented on the laws on investments and enterprises. 

This week, two of our Directors addressed a delegation of MBA students from the University of Technology Sydney at Hanoi University. Next Monday, our President will address a delegation of University students from RMIT University, Melbourne. Tuesday our Board will hold its monthly meeting via video conference in the Hanoi and HCMC offices of Austrade.  

Last night, the 1st Thursday of the Month, Sundowners was held in Hanoi and HCMC promoting our tourism members (Click for photos). The 2nd Friday of the Month (next Friday 11 July) is Sundowners in Danang. So plan your weekends in Hoi An. 

AusCham’s 2nd Annual Golf Scramble in HCMC – Fore (!) Business People – has been rescheduled to Friday 10 October. Sponsorship opportunities now available. 

We’re now starting to focus on our Top 5 Member Deals of the Week. Have you got a Top 5 Deal to offer?

Would you like your profile to appear in Asialink’s “Australians in Asia profiles” for their monthly newsletter? Contact me.

Get involved. It’s your Chamber.
