Hanoi – A total of 115 outstanding students received scholarships worth 1.15 billion VND (about 47,500 USD) from 61 Korean enterprises at the Korean Entrepreneur Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Festival on November 29 in Hanoi.
Addressing the event, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Nguyen Minh Hang said that Korean firms' contributions to society in the past year are noble gestures, reflecting the spirit and responsibility for sustainable and inclusive development of the Korean business community in the world and in Vietnam.
She also urged the Korean Chamber of Business in Vietnam (KOCHAM) and Korean enterprises to continue expanding their investment, generating jobs and creating the best conditions for Vietnamese workers working at Korean enterprises.
