The Vietnam Institute of Directors (VIOD) is an independent organization, which promotes corporate governance standards and best practices in the Vietnamese corporate sector. As a social enterprise, VIOD aims to advance board professionalism, promote business ethics and transparency, create a pool for independent directors, build a network to connect corporate leaders and stakeholders, and help companies inspire investor confidence.

VIOD is governed by a board of directors comprising various private sector representatives — in close collaboration with and supported by the SSC, HOSE and HNX under the Vietnam Corporate Governance Initiative. Our board members encompass a diverse group of business leaders and advocates of good corporate governance in Vietnam. They include senior dignitaries from investment funds, well-known international legal and accounting firms, and independent board members of prominent companies in the market.

VIOD was formed with technical support from the International Finance Corporation (IFC), a sister organization of the World Bank and a member of the World Bank Group and the Switzerland’s State Secretariat for Economic Affairs SECO.
