AmCham Vietnam has new President

 John Rockhold has been elected as the new Chairman of the American Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam (AmCham Vietnam) in 2022, succeeding Virginia Foote, who held the post in 2020 and 2021, according to the latest announcement of AmCham Hanoi.

Founded in 1994, AmCham Hanoi is a non-profit organisation whose primary mission is to promote trade and investment ties between the US and Vietnam. AmCham’s members provide billions of USD in foreign investment, tens of thousands of direct employees and hundreds of thousands of indirect employees, and significantly contribute  to Vietnam’s exports and tax revenues.

AmCham and its member companies are optimistic about prospects for economic reopening and recovery in Vietnam, Rockhold said.

AmCham is committed to ensuring that business is not disrupted any more than necessary during the COVID-19 period, he said, adding that the organisation’s members will work with their partners to promote sustainable growth in Vietnam so that new opportunities will be  realized in the future.

Rockhold has been living and working in Vietnam since 1992 and serves as the Chief Executive Officer of Chan May LNG JSC to implement climate change projects and help Vietnam satisfy its energy security needs.

He is also Co-Chair of AmCham’s Energy Committee and head of the Power and Energy Sub-working Group under the Vietnam Business Forum. /.
