Khai, who was born on December 25, 1993, served as Prime Minister of Viet Nam for two consecutive tenures from 1997-2006.

He was known as an active and decisive leader in institutional development with innovative spirit in order to promote the capacity of all economic sectors, especially private one, together with opening door to the world and integrating internationally.

During his tenures, Viet Nam issued the Law on Enterprises, abolishing hundreds of sub-licenses, and joined several rounds of tough talks on Viet Nam’s accession to the World Trade Organization, among others.

The Party and State have presented PM Khai the Golden Star Order and the 55-year Party Membership Badge (2014), in recognition of his dedications to the country's revolutionary cause.
