France Awards Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao with Legion of Honour

(15 Apr 2021)
Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao, Vietjet’s President and CEO,
has been awarded the Legion of Honour by the French Government.

The award ceremony at the French Embassy in
Vietnam was attended by diplomats, high-ranking dignitaries from
the  Vietnamese Government and business leaders in Hanoi on
14 April 2021.

The Legion of Honour, founded by Napoleon
Bonaparte in 1802, is the most prestigious, long-standing and
highest order of merit awarded by the French government.

At the ceremony, the French Ambassador to Vietnam
Nicolas Warnery presented the Legion of Honour to Madame Nguyen
Thi Phuong Thao – the first self-made female billionaire in
Southeast Asia and also the first Vietnamese businesswoman to
receive this honor.


At the ceremony, Ambassador Nicolas Warnery
honored the contributions of Madame Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao, for
her vision, wisdom and business philosophy for the development of
the community. He extended his gratitude to the businesses led by
Madame Thao such as Sovico, Vietjet, HDBank, etc. for always
accompanying and cooperating with French businesses and the French
people, especially during the period affected by COVID19.

To Anh Dung, Vice Minister of Foreign
Affairs To Anh Dung, said,
Congratulations to Madame Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao for the noble
award that the French government has presented today. Vietnam is
proud of the good values of a strongly developed Vietnamese
business community in which Madame Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao have
joined hands to build as a female representative.”

The Legion of Honour is the most
recent award  that Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao
has received. She is one of the few Vietnamese businesswomen who
have received many domestic and international awards such as
Asia’s Most Influential People for her philanthropy awarded by
Tatler magazine, one of 100 Asian economic transformers voted by
Business Insider Australia magazine, top 100 most powerful women
in the world, most powerful female leaders in Asia, the Best
Businesswoman Award in ASEAN, Asia-Pacific CEO of The Year 2019
voted by the world business community, etc. She was also included
in a case study for teaching and research at Harvard University –
USA.

Sovico Group, under her leadership, has pioneered
to become an official partner of the United Nations, together with
member organizations such as UNESCO, UN-Habitat, UNIDO Vietnam and
international, etc.

The Chief Representative of UNESCO in Vietnam,
Michael Croft, expressed his admiration to the President and CEO of
Vietjet, Madame Thao has clearly shown a preeminent vision beyond
ordinary business thinking. She understands that the honest
business philosophy and corporate responsibility are the
foundation to go beyond financial strength. This is probably due
to her in-depth understanding of the role of businesses in a large
society and her kind heart alongside her overwhelming vision, he
said.
