During the ceremony, Minh said, “We are delighted and honoured to continue partnering and connecting with enterprises, benefactors, and golfers in order to strengthen our contributions to society through the upcoming tournaments."

This year's tournament was enhanced by the presence of Miss World Vietnam 2010, Dang Ngoc Han, Vietnam Television MCs Quynh Hoa and Mai Ngoc, and actor Luong Thanh Hang.
