Golden Dragon Awards and Vietnam Excellent Brand Awards recognize foreign and domestic enterprises for their contribution to Vietnam's economy.
The Golden Dragon Awards and the Vietnamese Excellent Brand Awards were held on April 2 at the luxurious JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi on April 2. In attendance were government leaders, representatives from ministries, economic experts, and more than 500 CEOs from foreign-invested enterprises (FIEs) and Vietnamese enterprises, many of whom also attended the Vietnam Economic Times Group’s CEO Forum and the 25th anniversary celebrations of Thoi bao Kinh te Viet Nam (the owner of Vietnam Economic Times) on the previous day.
Vietnam Economic Times, the organizer of both awards, presented 75 FIEs with a Golden Dragon Award and 100 Vietnamese enterprises with a Vietnamese Excellent Brand Award. These enterprises are proof that there are sound enterprises overcoming the ongoing economic difficulties. They all have strategic plans to improve their competitiveness in terms of human resources, technology, quality, and services, to enable them to actively seize opportunities and face the challenges posed by international economic integration.
Many enterprises have been winners of Golden Dragon Awards for a number of years in succession, such as Samsung Vietnam, Chinfon Cement, HSBC, Deloitte Vietnam, Mercedes-Benz Vietnam, and Zamil Steel Vietnam. In the Vietnamese Excellent Brand awards, multiple winners included Vietinbank, the Saigon Jewelry Company, Vietcombank, Vingroup, the Thaco Group, the Doji Group, Vinamilk, and the Hoa Sen (Lotus) Group.
The Golden Dragon Awards and the Vietnam Excellent Brand Awards were initiated in 2001 to recognize and encourage enterprises that have recorded outstanding achievements. This recognition is considered from many perspectives, such as production and business activities, service provision, application of technological solutions for environmental protection, full implementation of tax obligations, ensuring employee rights, and actively participating in social activities.
