Being awarded with the "Excellent Entrepreneur" title is a great honour for 17 entrepreneurs in Dong Nai province. We understand that to be qualified with this recognition, in addition to the support from provincial leaders, entrepreneurs and their employees have made significant efforts to improve the business performance, to create quality products and build great brands, as well as to contribute to the communities through meaningful social programs.
Furthermore, one important factor that contributes to the overall businesses’ successes is the support from an enabling government through proper policies and concrete actions to encourage private sector’s development.
Vietnamese government's directions to facilitate the investment environment and start-ups in general and Dong Nai province’s policies in particular have created trust and encouraged businesses to grow continuously. In return, these have helped promote regional socio-economic development and international economic integration.
In the future, we are looking forward to receiving continued support from Dong Nai provincial leaders through favourable mechanisms and policies, active administrative reforms that could bring about the best conditions for enterprises to develop further.
At the awarding ceremony, Ganesan Ampalavanar, CEO of Nestlé Vietnam, was honoured with the Excellent Entrepreneur title for his contributions. He said that Dong Nai is a major market for the long-term development of Netlé Vietnam, and they pledged to pour more into the province.
