(www.phiglobal.com, PHIL), a diversified holding company currently engaged in PHILUX Global Funds (a group of Luxembourg bank funds), the Asia Diamond Exchange project (“ADE”) in Vietnam, mergers and acquisitions and investing in special situations (www.co2-1-0.io), is pleased to announce that the Company signed a strategic agreement with Vietnam – International Entrepreneur Networking Club (“VIENC”) on April 29, 2022 to assist Vietnam-based enterprises to access international capital sources and other resources to develop and improve corporate advantages for sustainable growth and expansion in domestic and international markets.
Speaking at a ceremony with the participation of selective entrepreneurs, leaders of government authorities supporting trade promotion in Ho Chi Minh City and representatives of various news agencies, Mr. Dinh Vinh Cuong, President of VIENC, stated: “Covid-19 pandemic has severely affected hundreds of thousands of small and medium enterprises all over the country. Within 2021, there were more than 100,000 domestic companies leaving the market due to severe difficulties. Since the beginning of 2022 until now, there are a number of positive signals for economic recovery. Nonetheless, Vietnam enterprises in general still have not entirely escaped economic difficulties due to the increasing price of oil, raw materials and logistics. “Capital scarcity” is still a burning issue for Vietnamese domestic enterprises. Given this situation, with the mission of creating a playing ground to connect Vietnamese entrepreneurs within and outside of Vietnam to support one another in order to push the post-pandemic economic recovery, VIENC has strived with great efforts to find and connect partners to assist domestic firms to maintain the production stability and reinforce the development pace for the future as well. In this endeavour, we have studied and recognized the potential and fitness of PHI Group in assisting Vietnam-based enterprises to connect with worldwide financial markets. We have decided to cooperate with PHI Group to assist Vietnamese companies in the public listing of their stock in international markets and increasing the awareness of their brands”.
Resonating with Mr. Dinh Vinh Cuong, Henry D. Fahman, Chairman and CEO of PHI Group, Inc., concurred, “We highly appreciate the entrepreneurship and creative dynamism of the President Dinh Vinh Cuong and other VIENC’s members. Within a short course of time, VIENC has connected certain of its members operating in several sectors in Vietnam and other nations to develop into leading enterprises in several industries. VIENC is strong in contributing ideas on policies, connecting many investment opportunities in infrastructure in several provinces and cities of Vietnam, being dynamic in supporting enterprises to unleash their potential, thus creating conditions to seize the opportunity and access the necessary resources for development. We definitely share the same viewpoint and objectives with VIENC and believe we can assist dozens of VIENC’s member companies to go public in the U.S. Stock Markets in the near future.”
In the spirit of long-term partnership and collaboration, the two parties have signed the strategy cooperation aiming at the following priorities:
- PHI will help VIENC to set up a Emerging Growth Fund as a sub-fund under the umbrella of Luxembourg-based PHILUX Global Funds to raise capital for VIENC’s members.
- PHI will support VIENC via training programs and seminars to enhance leadership and management capabilities for VIENC’s members.
- PHI will assist VIENC’s members in to list their stock in certain international stock exchanges, particularly in the U.S and Europe.
- PHI will help VIENC to participate in the building of the Asia Diamond Exchange in Vietnam.
The aforementioned strategic cooperation signing ceremony will open new opportunities for VIENC’s entrepreneurs in particular and the overall community of Vietnamese entrepreneurs in general in the course of post-pandemic economic recovery and growth.
