The Ho Chi Minh City Association of Women Entrepreneurs (HAWEE) convened its first Congress for the 2015-2020 tenure on April 5, with Vice President Nguyen Thi Doan in presence.
The HAWEE set the vision of establishing a venture fund for underprivileged women nationwide in partnership with the Vietnam Association of Women Entrepreneurs and other clubs and associations, among other activities.
In her speech, Vice President Doan hailed the formation of the HAWEE, especially at a time when Vietnam is gearing up for the birth of the common ASEAN Economic Community later this year.
She asked the association to attract more members to share experience and business opportunities, while tapping the State support to build a contingent of successful entrepreneurs.
Vice Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Tat Thanh Cang pledged all possible support for the HAWEE which he said, will serve as a bridge linking female entrepreneurs with local authorities to clear any arising business barrier.
The Congress elected a 29-strong executive board led Cao Thi Ngoc Dung, Chairwoman of the board of directors and General Director of Phu Nhuan Jewelry JSC.
