FLC to develop urban complex in Thái Bình

The 5th term of the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) has seen a tough time caused by devastating economic crisis. VCCI is proud to complete all tasks, but cannot hide concerns for unfinished work. The upcoming sixth term of VCCI promises to open up a lot of opportunities, but also to bring numerous challenges. Vietnam Business Forum interviewed Mr Nguyen Quoc Binh, Member of the Executive Board of VCCI's 5th term and CEO of Hanel Co., Ltd, on this issue. Hoang Tham reports. How do you assess VCCI's role of uniting and supporting businesses in the fifth term? VCCI plays an important role in the business community. This is convincingly evidenced by its ability to attract and gather member businesses across the nation with more than 100,000 companies being direct and indirect members. Especially, most of the biggest companies and business associations in the country are VCCI members. The fifth term of VCCI (2008-2013) is the "baptism of fire" of the entire economy of the country as well Vietnamese businesses in particular. However, this tough time has become an accurate measurement for enterprises' performances in general and VCCI operations in particular as the representative for legitimate rights and interests of enterprises and the bridge that connects the business community.

In 1983, he got a written warning issued by the Ba Dinh court on the charge of trading “stolen goods”. In August 2002, Toan was arrested and sentenced to 13 years’ imprisonment and three years’ probation for espionage activities. Showing leniency towards him, the government decided on January 24, 2006 to release Toan eight years before the end of his prison sentence. Instead of repenting what he has done, Toan continued to follow the beaten track. Taking advantage of the anxieties of petitioners coming from other localities to Hanoi, Toan told them that he would ask for “protection” and “support from abroad”. He even incited and encouraged them to cause social disorder by giving them money supplied by Vietnamese reactionaries living abroad.
