PhD Nguyen Thanh My, who was once Chairman of the Overseas Vietnamese Business Association, and his spouse Bui Thi Nhan were honoured for their contributions to promoting the “Vietnamese prioritise Vietnamese goods” campaign overseas.
Deputy Foreign Minister and Head of the State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese Affairs Nguyen Quoc Cuong on September 17 presented Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh’s certificate of merit to My, and insignias of the committee to My and Nhan.
Cuong praised My for working tirelessly to mobilise oversea Vietnamese to join efforts in building and developing the country.
After 20 years living and working in Canada and the US, My returned to his homeland in the Mekong Delta province of Tra Vinh in 2004. With more than 200 licenses of invention, My and his wife established nine high-tech enterprises, and created jobs for nearly 500 local labourers.
In the past years, they have spent more than 10 billion VND (431,300 USD) on building schools, presenting scholarships to local students, building houses for policy beneficiary families and poor households, and constructed rural bridges./.
