                        Financial Times: Referring to President Nguyen Minh Triet, Amy Kazmin in the  June 15 2007 issue, said:  “He was one of the main breakers of the rules – one of the main breakers of the orthodox system,” says Thomas Vallely, director of the Vietnam program at the Kennedy School for Government. “My clear impression is that he was experimenting without permission.”  It was an experiment that evidently paid off. Today Binh Duong is one of the prime sites for foreign direct investment, generating a significant portion of Vietnam’s booming export industries.

                        An open letter to the leadership of Vietnam

                        Reference:  http://cpv.org.vn/cpv/Modules/News_English/aboutus.aspx

                        Ba Dinh District Hanoi, Vietnam

                        Dear Mr. Vu Van Ha: 

                        My name is Bruce Camber and I am a television producer from the USA.  Since 1994 we have asked all the local business advocates within an area of the world but primarily the USA, “Who are the finest business people in this community?  Who are the people who create good jobs, they are ethical, generous, and true leaders? “ 

                        Within a designated television market of 3M to 4M, there are usually around 100,000 businesses.  It is impossible to know who are the very finest among them.  So we get recommendations from the chambers of commerce, the mayors, the business press, the business professors, and other local business advocates.  We have done over 300 episodes of this show that are broadcast on educational television (PBS-TV) and the Voice of America TV. 

                        The show has been sponsored by IBM, AT&T, and other very large businesses.

                        In 2007 we visited in Hanoi and HCMC to begin to meet television producers and business advocates who might do a similar show in Vietnam.  As a working title, we have called that show, The Best Businesses of Vietnam.

                        I read with great interest this online article in Vietnamnet Bridge referenced above.  You have identified the top 1000 businesses in Vietnam by their tax contribution.  

                        To qualify to be on our television show, we look at much more than the tax contribution.  We have always tried to find those people who have deep integrity and generous hearts within their community.  Our goal, "Let us be lifting up role models for each other and our children."

                        I have three questions I would hope you might answer for me:
                        1.     Are there any listings that sort the 300,000 names by industry? 
                        2.    Is that list publicly available? 
                        3.    Within each industry, is there a business association for each in Vietnam? 

                        We are working with people in every nation of 300,000 people or more to develop such a list of good businesses.  My guess is that out of the 300,000 in Vietnam that no less than 1% are truly exceptional business leaders.  That would be a list of 3000.  Now, that would be too large.  So, out of that list, we would work to find just 300 businesses that could be recognized for their dignity, good spirit, and genius.  Most of those 300 companies would make a very good episode of a show that explores their heart, energy, creativity, and deep motivations.   It makes for an excellent television show that would become an important part of the fabric of nation's identity.

                        With sixteen years of weekly productions, we now grasp how this business model can work within each country whereby the local people own that product.

                        Our work in Vietnam is in the public eye.  These Vietnam pages are still very rough; they’ll get better with the help of many local people with whom we are working.
