Yesterday, AusCham met with representatives of the Young Businesspeople’s Association (YBA) of HCMC (website is in Vietnamese) to discuss areas of possible cooperation.

A  number of ideas and proposals, from both parties, were tabled and some initiatives are expected to be announced shortly.

Separately, the Vice President of the YBA HCMC, Ms Pham Thi Bich Hue, proudly pulled out a copy of Doanh Nhan Tre, the Young Businesspeople’s Magazine. In the magazine, there is an article about Ms Hue’s trip to Australia earlier this year. While in Melbourne, Ms Hue had the pleasure of attending the Australian Open, courtesy of an event sponsor!

It was at this time, of course, that AusCham launched its Welcome Back Aussie Alumni events in Hanoi, Danang, Nha Trang and HCMC. All four events were held at the same time, coinciding with the live telecast of the Men’s Final of the Australian Open on Sunday, 1 February 2015!

Next year, the Welcome Back Aussie Alumni events are confirmed for Hanoi, Danang and HCMC – on the day of the Men’s Final of the 2016 Australian Open: Sunday, 31 January 2016. Save the Date!
