“These all go to improving the lives of people here in Vietnam and the world over,” he went on. “Our CSR philosophy fits hand-in-glove with our motto because the three focuses of our CSR programs - healthcare, education and housing - all contribute directly to the building of healthier and sustainable communities.”
