LinkWorld Unlimited International (Việt Nam) took 3 years to convince Dr. John William Snow to visit Vietnam and spent USD 1 million for his 3 working days in Vietnam. It is one of the explanation to the “golden opportunity” nature of the event.

Dr. John William Snow is considered the tycoon of two centuries and the father to hundreds of world-known trade marks.
According to Mrs. Anna Nguyen, Cerberus Asia Director, currently, Cerberus legal capital is USD 3,250 billions, and it has 350,000 workers worldwide. Its annual revenue is equal to Vietnam’s annual GDP (USD 73-74 billions). At present, Cerberus does not have any direct investment in Vietnam, however, its indirect investment in Vietnam – through capital injection into its counterparts operating in Vietnam - has already reach USD 28 billion. “We own many world big corporations and companies. The famous brand names such as Japan Airlines, Mercedes, City Group, Sheraton, etc. that are operating in Vietnam are not belonging to Japanese, German or any other person or people; they all owned by Cerberus” – Mrs. Anna Nguyen released.

In 2 days, 16 and 18 November 2011, Dr. Snow will host 2 international conferences in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City themed: how to build a global brand name, decision making moment in the unstable periods; is Vietnam a destination of world economic “empires”?

During his stay in Vietnam, Dr. Snow expressed his great interest in working with State and Party leaders and businessmen of Vietnam.

On 15 November, to start his working visit to Vietnam, Prof. Dr. John William Snow, the US 73rd Secretary of Treasury, had held a press conference.

Addressing the media’s question on “golden opportunity” for Vietnamese businesses during the Cerberus Chairman’s first visit to Vietnam, especially in circumstance, when the visit takes place during the global crisis and inflation that impacts many economies, including Vietnam, Dr. John Snow shared that he is working on concrete perspectives, topics and issues for discussions with Vietnamese leaders and businessmen in the capacity of an investor.

At this international workshop, a man with “super logical brain” – leader of a leading investment management firm also expressed his optimism and confidence. He stated: “I believe the investors will come to Vietnam”, because “Vietnam has many good factors. Those are rich culture and people’s creativeness – the valuable property to create wealth and prosperity. Besides, education and inquisitive nature play significant and important role. Vietnam already had idea to improve its trade balance by development of the key strategic markets. This will have long-run positive impacts. And the time will help to answer the question on your potentials.

For Cerberus, the visit of Dr. Snow and other Cerberus’s senior executives to Vietnam could serve as a primary market research trip. This trip receives great support from Government, ministries, agencies as well as domestic and foreign corporations and companies in Vietnam. The contacts and discussions with independent and join partners in Vietnam will provide Cerberus with many information on Vietnam. “Only after that, can we decide on Cerberus’s direct investment into Vietnam”, stated Mrs. Anna Nguyen, Cerberus’s Asia Director.

This is a good news for foreign investment in Vietnam.

Mrs. Anna Nguyen also added that her company is very proud to be able to invite Dr. Snow to Vietnam and hoping that during his visit, Vietnamese businessmen will have chance to introduce business opportunities in Vietnam to Dr. Snow and to other American companies. This, in turn, may contribute to the acceleration of foreign direct investment in Vietnam, and to the expansion of business in tourism and in many other industries of the country.
According to the plan, during 2 conferences in Hanoi (16 November) and in Ho Chi Minh City (18 November), Dr. Snow will share with Vietnamese leaders and businessmen secrets of business success and contribute to the search of answer for the question of how can Vietnam attract attention of world’s leading brand names, expecially of world giant investment fund or of world economic empires”.
