The Rolls-Royce Company along with the British Council in Vietnam and UK Trade & Investment (UKTI), signed a Memorandum of Understanding to support the development of management skills of State Owned Enterprises (SOEs) in Vietnam.
Attended the signing ceremony were British Minister of State, Jeremy Browne, Director of British Council in Vietnam, Robin Rickard, President of Rolls-Royce in Vietnam, Patrick Regis and Head of Trade and Investment at the British Embassy in Hanoi, Warren Pain.
Besides strengthening management skills, the MoU also outlines the aims for sharing knowledge and resources to support Vietnam’s World Trade commitments.
The initiative, funded through the Commercial Diplomacy fund, identifies key areas for engagement with SOEs including Petro Vietnam, Vietnam Airlines, Electricity of Vietnam, Vietnam Shipbuilding Group and Vietnam National Shipping Lines. Liverpool John Moore’s University (LJMU) is undertaking a training analysis.
Patrick Regis, President of Rolls-Royce in Vietnam said, “This partnership builds on activities that Rolls-Royce has undertaken in Vietnam, where we have assisted companies and enabled managers to learn from examples of best practice.”
