DCP Certificate Award & Alumni Networking

On 15th July 2020, with support from IFC and other strategic partners, VIOD successfully organized its DCP Certificate Award & Alumni Networking event in Ho Chi Minh City to congratulate the graduated members of DCP1, DCP3 and DCP4. Among over 70 attended guests were the members of 5 DCP programs organized by VIOD, representatives from Government agencies and stock exchanges, members  of VIOD’s founding partner – Vietnam Corporate Governance Initiative (VCGI) and VIOD’s board of directors as well as the honorable CMP Platinum and Gold members, who all have supported VIOD over the last 2 successful years.

Mr. Dominic Scriven OBE, Vice Chairman of VIOD & Chairman of Dragon Capital gave the opening remarks
Ms. Tran Anh Dao, Deputy General Director of Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange, shared about the role of professional board members in promoting corporate governance towards best practice, which contributes to the development of a transparent and sustainable stock market in Vietnam.

DCP is a core component of VIOD’s Governance Excellent Programs (GEPs), developed with main technical support from the International Finance Corporation (IFC) in partnership with Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) and the Government of Japan. The program is designed to serve the growing need for professional development on knowledge and skills needed for board members. The first DCP was launched in January 2019 and as of now, VIOD have completed 4 DCPs with 109 graduated members.

DCP has been back on track, after nearly 6 months of business interruption due to recent break of the COVID-19 Pandemic. The 5th DCP with full occupancy of 30 was organized from 15 – 17 July 2020 in Ho Chi Minh city. DCP5 participants will complete the final assessment of the Program, expecting an increase of the total graduated DCP members to 140 within August.

VIOD plans to have four programs in 2020 to expand further the network of professional directors. Please visit VIOD 2020 Calendar for more details.
