As a Manager of PwC Vietnam, specializing in customs and international trade consulting services, my daily work is to assist multinational companies with their customs and trade issues in Vietnam.
In addition to the valuable experience which I have gained through my involvement in various customs and international trade projects, I do have a strong passion and interest for international customs, trade and global operations. I force myself to keep up-to-date with prevailing local customs and trade regulations, practical international trade operations which encourage me to enrich my knowledge as well as support my daily works. Despite having been in the industry for nearly 10 years, facing hundreds of issues with my clients, I always find out that there are new things on this that we can learn every day. The Master of Global Trade program under the Hinrich Foundation Global Trade Scholarship would definitely help me to refresh my skills, as well as broaden my perspective in the global trading system. I will utilize them while doing my job and pursue my career path in customs and international trade consulting.
