US oil giant ExxonMobil continues to support STEM education and long-term healthcare programmes in Vietnam with an investment of $34,000 for Teach for Vietnam (TFV) in Quang Nam province and the VinaCapital Foundation (VCF) in Quang Ngai province this year.
Particularly, ExxonMobil Vietnam contributed $20,000 to TFV for providing STEM education and 21st century skill training of communications, collaboration, and problem-solving.
Along with this, 300 students in Que Son district of Quang Nam are expected to benefit from the capacity building programmes, while 30 teachers in the district will also receive upskill training.

ExxonMobil Vietnam has been supporting TFV in promoting education excellence and equity for Vietnamese children.
With a total funding support of $140,000 for TFV’s STEM programmes since 2018, nearly 2,000 students in rural public schools of Tay Ninh and Quang Nam provinces have directly benefited with improved learning outcomes.
In addition, around 300 local teachers from more than 20 schools have been trained to teach STEM in the classroom, benefiting an additional 3,000 students.
On November 15, ExxonMobil Vietnam donated 14 pieces of critical neonatal medical equipment and two-day intensive training in neonatal emergency resuscitation for doctors and nurses in Son Tay district, one of the poorest districts in Quang Ngai.
The provision of these life-saving equipment and training courses, which are worth over $14,000, aims to help reduce child mortality rates of the ethnic minority communities in the district.
This support is critical, especially for infants who need transferred to other hospitals in Quang Ngai or Danang for treatment.

ExxonMobil Vietnam, an affiliate of US oil giant ExxonMobil Corporation, together with local partners PetroVietnam and PetroVietnam Exploration Production Corporation, is engaged in development activities in several technically and commercially challenging blocks offshore central Vietnam in the Blue Whale field.
This project has special meaning for fuel supply, power generation, and ensuring energy security for the country.

With recent power shortages stemming from increased seasonal demand, along with the growing appetite for electricity from commercial and residential developments, the need for a more reliable power supply has made Vietnam an attractive market for foreign investors to develop rooftop solar energy. This has been led by Vietnam's foreign-invested enterprises (FIEs) in the manufacturing sector, particularly the electronics, semiconductor, and textile industries
